Determining the Beneficiary
What to Do if a Beneficiary is Deceased
If there is no contingent beneficiary, the benefits are paid to the policy owner or the owner's estate as outlined in the contract. If the beneficiary passed away after the insured but before benefits were paid, the benefits are payable to the beneficiary's estate. If benefits are payable to an estate, the court-appointed representative should complete the claimant's statement and provide us with a copy of the appointment document. Note: A death certificate for the deceased beneficiary is required.
