Is your domain functional level less than DS_BEHAVIOR_WIN2008? This may be the case. Other reasons for no return values can be found here.

Get-ADUserResultantPasswordPolicy  will return nothing if there is no Password Settings Object that applies to the user you run the cmdlet against. It will basically just query the msds-ResultantPSO attribute for any user you pass to the cmdlet and read the password settings for the referenced PSO. If no PSO is assigned to the user, this attribute doesn't exist for the user and can't be read, so the cmdlet returns nothing.

No response from user, but this is the most likely cause of the problem
