A life insurance policy becomes payable only when the person who is designated as the insured dies. The beneficiary is the person, persons or entity to whom or to which proceeds are payable upon the death of the insured, and is usually designated on the policy application. The beneficiary(ies) should obtain a copy of the death certificate, contact the insurer, and request a proof of claim. It must be completed and submitted to the insurer with the death certificate and any other material that the insurer requests.

Probably not unless the insurance company decides to allow it or it was a provision in the life insurance policy. Normally, people are not able to collect on their life insurance policy until the insured dies.

You can only collect on the life insurance if you were awarded this at time of divorce. I was awarded the ability to take out a life insurance policy on my ex. as I receive a military retirement which only exists if he is alive. After his death, it would stop, therefore I have the life insurance policy.

The insurance policy and a certified, original copy of the death certificate. If the policy has been lost or misplaced, the insurance carrier can provide the appropriate "lost policy" form.

No, if the life insurance policy is less than two years old. Some insurance companies would not pay at all in case of suicide. It all depends on the conditions in the life insurance policy.

A certificate of marriage is not required to collect on life insurance. Life insurance proceeds will be paid only to the named beneficiary/beneficiaries on the policy. If all beneficiaries are deceased, then the benefit will be paid to the deceased insured's estate.

Yes, even if incarcerated, you will still receive proceeds from a life insurance policy if you are the valid recipient. They will not be able to receive the proceeds if they were the cause of the insured's death.
