When Life Insurance Designations Lead To Disputes
Life insurance involves a contract with the decedent and insurance company to pay a benefit upon the death of the insured decedent. Most of the time – but not always – the life insurance is distributed pursuant to a beneficiary designation on file with the insurer.
Sometimes, however, there are compelling reasons to justify claims that beneficiaries were not correct or were not recorded in line with the insured deceased person’s wishes. If you and other members of your family are engaged in conflicts or controversies over life insurance beneficiary designations and the deceased person lived in Florida, turn to Forgione Law in Florida for clarity and guidance.

When Challenges To Life Insurance Beneficiary Designations Come To Light
Changes to life insurance beneficiary designations are subject to many of the same challenges as wills and trusts, including alleged lack of capacity and undue influence.
A beneficiary designation made pursuant to a power of attorney can also be invalidated if, for example, the power of attorney does not allow for such changes or the agent was not acting solely in accordance with the policyholder’s wishes.
