Is it possible for girlfriend to use the same life insurance co that she has a policy with in order to skip the underwriting process and gain HUGE bucks on your life?

I assume that you're wondering if she can get a policy on your life as your girlfriend behind your back. No, she can't, she has no insurable interest, such as a wife or parent would and she would need your signature in order to buy the insurance on you. This does not mean that you cannot allow her to pay for life insurance on you and you can name her as beneficiary if you choose. You can just say she is your fiance and that will suffice as insurable interest. She could also buy life insurance on you, forge your signature and make the payments herself all without your knowledge and of course all illegal. But it would not be for big bucks or it would require full underwriting which would include a paramed exam at the very least.

How would a wife find out if her husband has changed his life insurance policy beneficiary at his job without her knowledge?

You must know where he last worked (he could still be working there) so simply phone and ask to speak to him and if he no longer works there you will be told. If he is still dealing with the same life insurance company phone them and let on you may want to bring your husband in along with you and possibly change the policy. They are more apt to give you information on this. Also, your husband must have a copy of that policy so I'd search around the house (if you are still living together) and find it. He may also have a safe deposit box at a bank. Depending on the company, many of them require any beneficiary changes to have the signature of the spouse on them. I've worked for three major companies and they all made me have spouse's signature if the beneficiary was anyone other than the spouse. The above poster is correct. However, if you call the insurance company and say "my husband and I would like to come in and discuss the policy" and your name is still on it they will ask more questions and ask what changes you want to make. If you are no longer on the policy you'll get the run around because they can't legally discuss this policy if you aren't the beneficiary. You'll have your answer.
