Best Answer

The beneficiary of a life insurance policy is designated when the policy is taken out. After that the policy owner (usually the insured but now always) can change the beneficiary by completing a change of beneficiary form. The company processes the change then sends you an amendment showing the change. Normally you put this amendment with the policy as it becomes part of the policy. If the policy owner kept their records straight then you could look at the policy and see the latest amendment to find out who the current beneficiary is. If your not sure the policy is kept up to date you can contact the company and see who the latest beneficiary is on the policy.
