Only the owner of the policy may access the cash. Only the named beneficiaries may receive the death proceeds. This is not to say that a spouse would not go after a cash value in a divorce. I am not sure what the legal issues would be at that point...but a new spouse? How could she have any claim? Best solution...Form a trust, the trust becomes the owner...not an issue any more. Helps for those larger estates too.

When a homeowner dies is the house still covered or do you have to get new coverage?

Any time the owner of an insurance policy dies, a new policy must be issued. The owner/beneficiary must have a vested financial interest in the potential loss. Otherwise you could take out a policy on your neighbor's life or home.
