Can your beneficiary collect life-insurance benefits after your suicide?
Life insurance is regulated by the various states, not by the federal government. It is deemed to be contrary to public interest to encourage suicide by making insurance proceeds available to those who see no way out of their financial difficulties. Therefore, insurance companies usually prohibit claims when suicide is the cause of death, but that limitation usually lasts for only 2 years from the date of policy issuance. If suicide occurs within 2 years, payment is typically limited to a refund of premiums.he policy. In sum, even if death is by suicide, benefits will normally be paid if death occurs after the policy has been in force for 2 years. Be sure, however, to refer to the written terms of the policy and the insurance code of the state in which the policy was issued, as they will always prevail.

To collect on a life insurance policy do you have to have the death certificate with the cause of death or can you use a death certificate that does not have the cause of death?
A death certificate with the cause of death is usually required on life insurance policies. It depends on the insurance company, the type of policy and what its terms are. An insurance company will most likely require a death certificate with the cause of death, because the cause of death is important in all life insurance claims. If the policy is one for accidental death benefits only, the company is entitled to know and the… Read More

Benefits may be payable if the insured commits suicide, but it depends upon the terms of the policy.

Your sister was murdered by her husband who then committed suicide your sister was first beneficiary on policy do her family have any rights to the life insurance death benefits?
Usually it depends on how the beneficiaries were stated on the policy. If she left all to the husband, then since he was the last to die, his beneficiaries would be the ones who count. But, if she died first, the contingent beneficiaries would be the next on the list. I don't know though, if the murder and suicide would affect this. Read More

That is highly dependent upon who the policy is through. Contact the insurance company you have it through to see if you have reviewed the policy and you still do not have your answer. Each company is different on their stipulations for what they will and will not pay out for. They may treat it as suicide or a mental illness that they do not pay out for. That is a grey area.

Could you contest a beneficiary name change on a life insurance policy if the insured killed themselves less than 24 hours after the change?
You can try but if it was the insured wishes that the beneficiary be changed, then there may be nothing you can do. That said, suicide may suggest mental instability, and in turn, that can impact the legal capacity of the insured to have rationally considered the implications of the change in beneficiary. For example, if the insured was mentally unstable, he/she may have been more susceptible to the influence of another (presumably, the new… Read More

Why does a person who dies have to be declared legally dead when there is no such thing as illegally dead?
Well, you are technically correct in saying that there is no such thing as being illegally dead, although in some states, committing suicide is illegal. I know, how can the dead person be charged with a crime against themselves. Who knows.... A person has to be declared "legally dead" for many reasons. You have to declare somebody as dead so that nobody can vote, or collect social security benefits in their name. Read More
