I am assuming that by your question, the intended named beneficiary was written on the application with the wrong middle name. Usually when filling out the application, the beneficiary is designated by Name as well as "relationship to insured" and SS #. Sometimes it even includes a D.O.B. and may also include an address. You can find the named beneficiary info as provided to the insurance co. by looking in the back of the policy at the copy of the original application. Here is why all that info is important. Suppose John Smith marries Jane C. Walter who becomes Jane C. Smith. Years later she dies or they become divorced and later John Smith re-marries and her name is also Jane but her middle initial is different! You can see where the Insurance company may have issues releasing the death benefit. By law, they have to pay Jane C. because she is still the named beneficiary unless John remembered to change it to his new wife!

Can you dispute life insurance beneficiary?

Unless the policy specifies that the beneficiary designation is irrevocable, the owner of the policy, who is most often the insured, has the right to change the beneficiary of a life insurance policy at any time prior to death. That said, a third party may also contest the right of a beneficiary to policy proceeds by making a claim to them forms required by the company. In that case, there may end up being a contest between the competing claimants, such that the insurer would want to commence an "interpleader action" in a court of competent jurisdiction. The insurer would thereby ask the court to determine which of the claimants it should pay, and by so doing, try to avoid getting in the middle of the dispute. The court would hash out the rights of the parties to the proceeds, and the insurer would pay the winner.
