Ask the Life Insurance Expert

My sister took a life insurance on our mother without telling me. Our stepfather is still alive and the mother has just passed away. Who is the beneficiary?

We can’t know who the beneficiary is without seeing the policy, and since you’re not the policy owner you don’t have a legal right to the information.

But I’m sure you have your suspicions – surely your sister made herself the beneficiary.
