If the life insurance policy had listed as the beneficiary the spouse only then it is not considered part of the estate and is not subject to claims.

Yes! The beneficiary on a life insurance policy does not have to be included in a will in order to receive the life insurance benefits.
No, only the policy owner (usually the insured) can decide who the beneficiary is on a life insurance policy. Life insurance has nothing to do with a will or estate distribution after someone's death. That's why it is imperative to keep the beneficiary section updated constantly based on the life changes; too many people who get divorced forget to update their life insurance beneficiary on the policy and benefit may go to the ex-spouse. Life insurance companies are bound by the contract that is the life insurance policy to only pay the beneficiary specified on the policy. If all beneficiaries specified on the policy are deceased, then the benefit will be paid to insured's estate.
There is no age restriction for a beneficiary on a life insurance policy.
