Sorry for your situation.  The money should still be there and if the insurance company did not here back from you, they should have reached out again.  She can't get your money, they can only give it to who is named as a beneficiary on the policy.  If it's been years the statute of limitations probably ran on mom but you would call the police an/or FBI as it's a federal crime to seal someones mail.  You could hire a local attorney to file a claim against your mother and get the information through discovery or just search through what you have to find the name of the company.

Thanks for choosing JustAnswer and have a good day!

my father didn't tell me the name of the company before he died just that he got an $80,000 policy. She had all the info and the only mail key. She went and got her money then only gave us the mail she wanted to. She doesn't care about her getting the money, she just doesn't want us to get ours because we would move out and she doesn't want to live alone. I don't know how to find the insurance company name

If you don't have any clue of who to call to even check different companies, you could hire a local attorney to file a claim against your mother and get the information through discovery
