If the insured changed the life insurance beneficiary, is there a way to invalidate it?

Most courts will invalidate a life insurance beneficiary change form if it was changed as a result of fraud, undue influence, lack of capacity, or insane delusion. This means, for example, that if the insured was elderly or ill and changed the beneficiary to another person and may not have had their faculties together at the time the change was made, a court may invalidate the change form so it reverts back to the previous form. Often, insurance companies will initiate an Interpleader action where there is a beneficiary dispute.

Our office has represented beneficiaries in change of life insurance beneficiary disputes. We often look at medical records of the deceased person, witness statements, and other evidence to help determine the person's mental state when the form was signed.

Most insurance companies also have strict procedures in place which must be followed in order to change a beneficiary. We can review the policy and change forms to see if the procedures were properly complied with. If not, this may also invalidate the change of beneficiary.
