We have 2 life insurance policies paid out but no 1099-R

Life insurance payouts to the beneficiary recipient of a life insurance policy are not taxable or reportable on any tax return. However, any earnings that "may" have accumulated on that payout after the passing of the insured deceased could be taxable income to the beneficiary recipient. If there are any taxes due, then the insurance company or distributor of the payout will send the beneficiary recipient the appropriate tax reporting document to report the taxable portion only, of the payout. So if you've not got any tax reporting documents by now, you have nothing to report concerning this on any tax return.
