How does life insurance pay beneficiaries?

The insurance company must be notified of the insured's death, preferably by a beneficiary, policy owner, or an insurance agent, at which point it will send out packages of paperwork to all beneficiaries on file for that insurance policy. The paperwork is filled out by each beneficiary and returned to the insurance company, along with a certified copy of a death certificate, at which time the insurance company processes the paperwork, verfies the eligibility of the claim, and then, if appropriate, pays out the proceeds of the insurance policy.

What happens if the beneficiary of a life insurance policy is deceased and there is no will?
