Ask the Life Insurance Expert

My husband's will says I can get 50% of his life insurance if he dies. I want to know what percentage a wife is supposed to get according to the law?

No law guarantees a wife any life insurance.

The policy owner, in this case your husband, I assume, decides who is named as a beneficiary and what percentage they get. Your husband could cut you out if he felt like it.
