In the state of New Jersey can a husband take his wife off of his life insurance policy as beneficiary without her knowledge or signature?


Generally no. The insured must generally sign the application and take a physical. There are a FEW speciality policies that might do this. Here's ONE. http://www.piu.org/pdf/Confidential%20Life%20501.pdf It won't do spouses though.

Of course he can take her off the policy and he can do that without her notice.He can have anyone at all as beneficiary
