Best Answer

This all depends on who took out the life insurance policy and who was named as the primary beneficiary at the time. The primary beneficiary is named within the policy document. The primary beneficiary may or may not be the father and/or mother.

If the primary beneficiary is deceased, then check the policy for a named contingent beneficiary.

If there are no named beneficiaries living, then the policy proceeds become part of the policy holder's estate. Please consult with a qualified attorney, to determine guardianship of the child's estate.

Ask the insurance agent and a lawyer for a free consult to be sure.
