If a life insurance policy owner dies what happens to the policy?
if the owner of a life insurance policy dies and the policy is on her son. What happens to the ppolicy and is it part of the estate.
The new owner of a life insurance policy if the original owner dies before the insured.
If the owner of an insurance policy is deceased then is should be listed as an asset when it comes to distribution. If the insured dies, then any value would be passed on to any listed beneficiaries.
After the assets are distributed, a new policy should be written. I would contact the agent and inform them of the named insureds passing.
What kind of health examination do you have to undergo before you can qualify for homeowner insurance?
You do not need a health examination to obtain home owner insurance. Your health is not an issue. If you were to suddenly die, after buying home owner insurance, the insurance company doesn't have to pay a death benefit, since home owner insurance isn't life insurance. What happens when a home owner dies is that someone else inherits the house. The new owner will have the option of continuing the existing home owner insurance policy.
Not under the standard auto insurance policy.
The executor should contact the insurance company and notify it of the death of the owner of the policy.
Any time the owner of an insurance policy dies, a new policy must be issued. The owner/beneficiary must have a vested financial interest in the potential loss. Otherwise you could take out a policy on your neighbor's life or home. In the case of marital property, the surviving spouse usually only needs to have the title of the policy changed if her or she was a co-owner of both the insured property and the insurance… Read More
What happens if the sole beneficiary on an insurance policy dies before that person and the policy is never changed?
It goes to the estate
the house is paid off and given to the beneficiary
Change of ownership is not allowed in life insurance policy. Once the policy holder dies, accrued sum is payable to the nominee and the matter ends there. In that case, you are to take policy afresh.
NO. The beneficiary is only entitled to the death benefit proceeds when the insured dies. The owner of the life insurance policy controls the policy, the beneficiaries, any cash values, and is responsible for premium payments. The owner has the ultimate control of the life insurance policy and can change the beneficiary of the policy at any time...and does not need the beneficiary's permission to do this.

Maybe if the person driving is a named driver on the policy but you would have to check with the insurance company.
If the owner of the policy is also the named insured, the insurer ordinarily pays the death benefit to the named beneficiary. This presumes that the policy was in force at the time of death. If the owner of the policy is not the insured, the policy becomes an asset of the estate and passes either according to the terms of the Will or, if no Will, by laws of intestate succession. The risk there… Read More
If a beneficiary of a life insurance policy dies before the insured what happens to the money once the insured dies?
Goes to the beneficiaries heir's or estate.
What happens if the sole beneficiary to a life insurance policy dies after the insured dies but before the claim is processed?
The proceeds belong to the estate of the beneficiary.
PMI has absolutely nothing to do with the death of a home owner. There is no benefit to the PMI in this situation. A Mortgage Life Insurance policy would be of great benefit as it would pay off the mortgage on the house at the death of the homeowner.
If the policyholder (policy owner) is also the insured, then no one does. The policy proceeds (assuming the policy is in force at the time of death) are paid according to the designated beneficiary(ies), and the contract ceases to exist. If the policyholder (owner) is not the insured, then the policy ownership would flow according to the owner's will.
Can you deny the benefits of an insurance policy if you are the owner so the beneficiary can collect the proceeds of the policy tax free after the insured is deceased?
I assume you are talking about life insurance. As the policy owner, you have no right to benefits so there is nothing for you to do. Benefits are only payable to the beneficiary unless all beneficiaries are deceased prior to the insured then it would be paid to the estate of the beneficiary. The owner of the policy basically has control of the policy before the insured dies. They are the only one who can… Read More
I took out life insurance on my husband in 1988 we divorced 10 years later. I have been paying it ever since. He has married again. If he dies who will be able to claim on the policy.?
Are you the owner of the policy? If so, you are the only person authorized to change the beneficiary on the policy. If you are not the owner of the policy, your ex-husband can change the life insurance beneficiary regardless of the fact that you have paid the premiums.
After a couple has been married for 11yrs and have two children they decide to get a divorce does the wife have claim to keep a life insurance policy on her husband if he dies?
Yes, she can legally keep any insurance on him that she is the policy holder (owner) of. However, she cannot apply for any new insurance for him, and if the policy goes "inactive" she may not be able to reinstate it.
In that case, the money will be kept deposited with the insurance company as unclaimed amount. In absence of the beneficiary, the insurance company can pay the money to the legal heir of the policy holder, but that has to be sufficiently proved in the Court of Law.
It would be possible to write an insurance policy that way if you wanted to, however, normally a life insurance policy pays a fixed amount of money (known as the death benefit) to a chosen beneficiary. If the beneficiary then wished to use that money to pay for a home, that could be done.
Your insurance company will likely continue coverage and appoint a new insurance agent to service your policy. It is recommended that you have the new agent review your account and give his or her best opinion.
Logic would tell me the person that is in charge of the dead person's estate. On the other hand it would be a real good idea to read the contract with the lease company first, sometimes when the lease contract is made their is an insurance policy built into it. You might also want to look at the dead person's auto insurance policy to see if there is anything about what happens when the owner… Read More
The question does not really involve "should". The direct answer is "no". Using life insurance as an example, the owner of the policy is often the person who pays the premium. The insurance contract gives the owner various rights, such as to initially designate the beneficiary, change the beneficiary, pledge the policy as security for a loan, and other acts. The insured is the person whose life is, well, insured. Stated otherwise, this means that… Read More
What benefit is paid if the insured dies after term insurance expires on an extended term insurance policy?
Once the term policy expires there is no further benefit owed to the owner/beneficiary of the policy. You have converted the whole/entire life policy into a term/temporary policy. The cash value was used to pay the premiums for the term policy. Therefore, there is no longer a cash value on your insurance policy. Once the temporary policy expires, a new policy or extension must have been in place before the insured's death to receive any… Read More
Only if they had mortgage insurance.
It is a life insurance policy that pays a giant sum of money when a person dies. This payment is traditional with benefits and many receive this. Many invest in these payments before they pass or when an event happens.
It's customary and legally binding that the Nominee will receive the proceeds in case of any eventuality of the policy holder. In case the nominee is a minor, the Appointee will receive the money on behalf of the minor nominee. When there are legal heirs more than one, the nominee has to bestow the proceeds among them as per proportion of their shares.
If a person dies in a manner not covered by the policy, there would be no payout.
No. For that kind of benefit you need mortgage insurance or a life insurance policy. No. For that kind of benefit you need mortgage insurance or a life insurance policy. No. For that kind of benefit you need mortgage insurance or a life insurance policy. No. For that kind of benefit you need mortgage insurance or a life insurance policy.
The next of kin to the policy holder will get paid for the policy.
Homeowners Insurance is what you need to cover a home.
Can a life insurance company say you are not eligible to cash policy on Ex husband who died recently that you have been paying for 19 years?
When an insured person dies, presuming the policy is "in force," and the contestable period is past (two years from the date of issue), the insurance company pays the death benefit to the beneficary(ies). Cashing in a policy usually can only be done by the owner of the policy, or by someone to whom the policy has been assigned, prior to the death of the insured.
I would let your insurance company know. They can remove them from the policy. That might help lower your rates. Sorry for your lost.
What happens to a mortgage when the owner dies and has children but no will and no insurance to pay off the mortgage?
The estate must be probated. Either the children need to pay the mortgage or the bank will take possession of the property by foreclosure.
Generally, an auto insurance policy does not automatically cancel upon the policyholders death. The policy will typically continue to provide coverage to the executors of the policyholder's estate until the end of the policy term.
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.
The policy holder is the "owner" of the policy and not necessarily the person covered by the insurance or "the insured". However, if the "insured" person passes away, any and all policies that are currently in force (paid to the current date) would pay out. If policy holder died, the nominee person will get the cover. otherwise you won't get any money.if you want to know more about your query, just visit the bankbazaar.com
Do you get cash from your mother's life insurance policy when she dies or does your father get it all?
The named beneficiary on the life insurance policy gets it. It is a contract and specifies who gets paid, usually it will be the spouse.
The policy holder has the choice to change the name of the beneficiary at any time, including after the death of a named beneficiary. If the policy holder doesn't change the name of the beneficiary after the beneficiaries death, depending on what state you live in it goes to next of kin.
One can sell their life insurance policy and this is called Viatical Settlement. An insurance company sells insurance policy to a person. This person (viator) sells his policy to another person (viatical settlement provider). When the first person dies, the second person will benefit and cash in the money.

Usually the payout happens within 2-4 weeks from the date of claim by the next of kin. When a policy holder dies, the nominee of the policy has to submit paper-work to the insurance company along with proof of relationship and death of the policy holder. Once everything is completed, money would reach the beneficiary in around 2 to 4 weeks.
