– from Judith P. in Fox Point, WI
My son passed away one year after his divorce. He never changed the beneficiary on his life insurance policy to me. Although that is what he wanted, he never got around to doing it. We always believed there would be plenty of time, you know? He told me, his mother, that he did not want his ex-wife to collect on his life insurance if anything should ever happen to him. Through this period of grief, I want to be sure that I can give him a proper funeral. I can't afford it on my own. Can I collect the insurance knowing that is what he wanted so I can give him a proper burial?
