Simply contact the insurance company and ask for the claims department. Explain to them the situation and they can tell you who the beneficiary is. They will be happy to settle a claim for you in most cases! You may also want to check and see if there is an agent listed as a contact within the paperwork you have and start there. Good luck! 4lifeguild.com

The beneficiary benefits financially from the life insurance policy by receiving the proceeds of the policy. The beneficiary is the person(s) or entity who is designated by the insured person to receive the proceeds from the life insurance policy upon the death of the insured person. The insured person also benefits from knowing (peac eof mind) they have secured financial protection for the beneficiary in case the insured person dies.

Yes. Insurance proceeds, unless the beneficiary is the estate, are payable directly to the person who is named as the beneficiary beneficiary. As such, the policy proceeds pass "outside" of the estate and do not become a part of it. If the same person who is the named beneficiary of the policy is also the executor of the estate, he/she is required to carry out the directives of the Will. This includes paying legal debts of the deceased, ensuring protection of the value of the assets of the estate, and distributing the assets as directed in the Will.

A Contingent or Secondary Beneficiary will receive the proceeds from a life insurance policy after the Insured's deaths, if the Primary Beneficiary does not survive the Insured Person. This means, if the primary beneficiary is not alive at the time of death of the insured person, then the contingent beneficiary will receive the proceeds from the life insurance policy. Examples of situations which may give rise to the contingent beneficiary receiving the proceeds from a life insurance policy. 1. The insured and primary beneficiary die in an accident together, for example, a car accident. 2. The primary beneciairy dies, and the insured forgets to update the beneficiaries for his/her life insurance policy.

Yes, the policy owner can change the beneficiary. Sometimes, the person insured and the policy owner are not the same person, if someone else pays the premium for the insurance policy. For example, a parent or guardian taking an insurance policy on spouse or children. Some insurance policies are assigned to cover bank loans, and even if the insured may pay the premium, the bank can be assigned as the owner of the policy; in that case the bank decides who the beneficiary is going to be (usually in this scenario, the bank will also be the beneficiary).

User Avatar

Yes. The policy is controlled by the "owner"of the policy. If the insured person is the owner, then the beneficiary should be written as "irrevocable." An "irrevocable" beneficiary can only be changed with the consent of that beneficiary, regardless of who the policy "owner" is. Hope this helps.

If you have been notified that you are a beneficiary of an insurance policy or will, you should contact the person who notified you to learn what to do next.

The beneficiary is the person who receives the proceeds from a life insurance policy upon the death of the insured person. In law, a beneficiary is one who is designated to receive something as a result of a legal arrangement or instrument. For example, a person may be the beneficiary of a will, trust, bank account, investment account or life insurance policy. On the other hand, a church, charitable organization, school, college, cemetery association, public television, hospital, museum, etc., could also be a beneficiary of a will, trust, account or insurance policy.

Only the owner of the life insurance policy can change the beneficiary designations. In many case the owner is the insured. Check your policy for the definitions or call your agent.

Insurance companies will not pay if the beneficiary is convicted of the homicide. Most insurance companies will pay the beneficiary if that person was not involved and the policy does not exclude homicide as the cause of death.

In regards to life insurance, contingent usually means secondary. For example a contingent beneficiary is a secondary beneficiary, not the primary beneficiary. The contingent beneficiary would receive the proceeds from a life insurance policy if the primary beneficiary were not alive when the insured person dies.

A secondary beneficiary is a person who would receive the benefits of a life insurance policy or retirement plan in the event that the insured person dies and the primary beneficiary has also passed away. Then, the secondary beneficiary would receive the benefits.
