Probably. Check with the claims department of the insurance company. It would be better if a trust had been set up to receive the benefits on behalf of the minor. The Mother may have to go to court to get authorization to sign for the child. For more info see www.SteveShorr.com/life.htm and www.SteveShorr.com/estate.planning.htm

What does a beneficiary do with a life insurance check?

In most cases, the beneficiary has no specific responsibility to do something with a life insurance payout. However, you should be careful to retain a portion of it to cover taxes that might result because of the income. Additionally, if the recipient of the proceeds gets it on behalf of another person (for example, a parent on behalf of a child), the recipient has a fiduciary duty to hold/use the funds in trust and for the best interests of the intended beneficiary.

Is a parent the beneficiary of their child's life insurance?

This all depends on who took out the life insurance policy and who was named as the primary beneficiary at the time. The primary beneficiary is named within the policy document. The primary beneficiary may or may not be the father and/or mother. If the primary beneficiary is deceased, then check the policy for a named contingent beneficiary. If there are no named beneficiaries living, then the policy proceeds become part of the policy holder's estate. Please consult with a qualified attorney, to determine guardianship of the child's estate. Ask the insurance agent and a lawyer for a free consult to be sure.
