My uncle was beneficiary on his mother's policy and has since passed away leaving no named beneficiary, so do the proceeds get distributed pursuant to the will? Yes Otherwise, check the rules for your state on "intestate" sucession. This situation is why it's a good idea to name a secondary beneficiary. If the primary passes away, the next in line gets the payout.
if someone died and left an insurance policy and named me beneficiary how can i find out
Check with The Center for Life Insurance Disputes.
A secondary beneficiary is a person who would receive the benefits of a life insurance policy or retirement plan in the event that the insured person dies and the primary beneficiary has also passed away. Then, the secondary beneficiary would receive the benefits.
Contact the insurance company and request a change of beneficiary form. They will mail the form to the policy owner. You fill it out and mail it back to the insurance company so they can update your life insurance policy.
Yes. A secondary beneficiary only becomes beneficiary if the primary beneficiary dies before the insured. Say the insured and primary beneficiary are involved in a fatal auto accident but the insured dies an hour before the primary beneficiary. The insurance proceeds would not go to the secondary beneficiary but to the estate of the primary beneficiary. If the primary beneficiary dies an hour before the insured then the secondary beneficiary receives the proceeds. If an insured wants both to receive monies they can name more than one person as primary beneficiary and in what percentage for each person. They could also leave it to their estate and handle distribution by a will.
it means that you now have ownership of the policy as your husband has passed away - in other words if anything happens to your daughter you are the beneficiary.
I was the beneficiary, when my Grandpa passed away, by getting all his possessions.
Not if there is a named beneficiary living. that makes it separate from theEstate of the deceased. example my mother recently passed away while she left a life insurance policy and stated me as the beneficiary, she also had one on me and she was the sole owner. Which makes that life insurance policy part of the estate since there was no other person who was named as owner hope that helps.
The only person that can change is has already passed away. It is too late to change the beneficiary. However, there may be a law in your jurisdiction that says that it has to be the spouse unless the spouse has signed off on the selection form.
hopefully the beneficiary had a trust or a will
You are very entitled. But they do not have to tell any information about the policy, without consent of the insured. Yes, if the insured person has passed and you are the beneficiary, you should call the insurance company and go through their steps to claim the benefit. It is the responsibility of someone that knows the Insured has passed to inform the Insurance Company. If no one tells them, they will assume that the insured no longer wants the policy and they will cancel it. It will require you to show a signed sealed death certificate and possibly other documents. It is sometimes different for each company. They then will issue a check to the person(s) listed on the policy as the beneficiary.
Term life insurance is what people call "pure insurance." You pay a premium for a specific period of time, usually 10 to 30 years, and the company will pay a death benefit to your beneficiary if you passed away in that time period. You designate an amount with the insurance company and they will pay exactly that amount.
If a person has two or more life insurance policy, what happens in case the insurer passed away?
If you were on his life insurance policy and he was military, they will be contacting you. No worries. You would simply contact the SGLI claims department and file a claim, or at the least find out who is in fact a beneficiary. Try this link for a link to VA Affairs and a phone number. They will point you in the right direction. http://www.military.com/Finance/content/0,15356,165322,00.html
I would guess it turns to silane, leaving soot in the tube.
Not unless you're the mother...in this case.
I am assuming the father is still living? In any event, a life insurance policy is not a probate asset, meaning that it does not pass in the will (exception being certain trusts). The insurance policy is a contract, and passed by operation of law.

I want to know what happens to a bill that is passed by the Senate?
Yes, unless there is a stipulation in the will stating otherwise.
It depends on the goodwill of the girlfriend. Hopefully, his Dad has not passed and can put the information into writing. Also, there are options when you sign up for life insurance to indicate percentages to beneficiaries.
No. Life insurance benefits are not eligable for taxation unless the insured passed away without assigning a beneficiary. In this situation the benefits are paid into the deceased's estate and are subject to any back taxes or child support owed by the deceased, or the would be inheritor. Cash value is not the same as an insurance benefit and may be taxable in some situations. Group (employment) insurance has no cash value.
