No. The contingency that triggers payment of a life insurance is the death of the named insured. That person could have changed the beneficiary designation prior to his/her death. Even if the policy had given the power to change the beneficiary to another person, the change would have had to be exercised before the named insured dies.

The Insured can change the beneficiary on a life insurance contract.
Assuming you are talking about Life Insurance the answer is no. Once the insured is deceased, this will trigger the insurance company to pay the benefits to the beneficiary, and the policy will no longer exist. The owner no longer owns anything.
As long as you did not make your beneficiary irrevocable, you can just change your beneficiary. If your beneficiary is irrevocable you are out of luck unless you can get them to authorize the change.
The owner of a life insurance policy has the right to choose the beneficiary. Another person has no power to change that choice.
No only the owner of the policy can change the beneficiary.
The purchaser of an insurance policy names the beneficiary.
yes. until you change the beneficiary they will stay on there
