Best Answer

Yes.

Howevery, if the will specifically names the proceeds, then it will get confusing. You should probably get a lawyer and review case law.

For more info. see www.SteveShorr.com/life.htm

Whoever's name is on the will, gets all- but, depending on the amount, and complexity of the estate, this case usually ends up in probate, and at that time, you would have to show proof that you would be entitled to the payout. You will need a lawyer.

Who receives money from life insurance policies upon death?

Part of the process of buying life insurance involves the designation of a beneficiary-the person(s) or entity(ies) that will receive the proceeds of the policy upon the insured's death. The beneficiary(ies) can be changed during the insured's lifetime, but as of the time of death, the designated beneficiary is entitled to the proceeds. If no beneficiary has been designated in the policy, proceeds are usually paid to the estate of the insured.

What happens if the beneficiary of a life insurance policy is deceased?

Generally, if the beneficiary is deceased, the proceeds go to the contingent beneficiary, or if none, to the estate of the insured. An attorney must be consulted to direct you on how to handle this in your state. It depends on whether the beneficiary predeceased the insured. If the beneficiary died before the insured then the proceeds go the the contingent beneficiary. If there is not a contingent, check the contract, it probably is paid to the Owner of the Estate of the Insured. If the Beneficiary died after the Insured, the proceeds go to the Beneficiary's Estate. It is important to have a contingent beneficiary specified in your life insurance policy. This way, if the beneficiary passes away, the contingent beneficiary will benefit. If there is no contingent beneficiary, and the beneficiary has deceased, the proceeds of the life insurance policy, go to the estate and is distributed according to the Will.

Can a heir reject life insurance My brother had life insurance no beneficiary. Parent will be getting 50 percent each if one parent rejects there end will the other parent receive the full amount?

NO. Your question is a bit confusing. First you state their is no beneficiary but then indicate the parents may be the beneficiary. Normally life insurance proceeds do not go through an heirs probate process. Life insurance goes directly to the designated beneficiary outside of any probate process unless no one has been designated or the designated beneficiaries are themselves deceased. If there is no designated beneficiary at all, the life insurance will default to the estate of the deceased for probate and apportionment to the heirs. If there are 2 equal 50 percent designated beneficiaries and one rejects their 50 percent portion, that 50 percent will be assigned to the estate of the deceased for probate and then be apportioned to the heirs of the deceased. An heir can assign his or her inheritance to another heir if they so choose. If the heirs reject the proceeds of the life insurance disbursed by the estate and then also decline to assign it to another heir, then those proceeds will default to the government.
