Don't Let Life Insurance Become the War of the Roses

Life Insurance

Are you recently remarried and want to add your new spouse as a beneficiary to your existing life insurance policy? You may want to do a little research before making any changes to your current policy.

If your existing life insurance policy has your ex-spouse as beneficiary, and you want to split the proceeds with your current spouse it could have potential problems. You may have been court ordered to have a policy in place with your ex-spouse as beneficiary as part of a divorce agreement. There also may be a stipulation that your ex-spouse needed a set amount of money in order to raise the children.

The last thing you would want is to have your estate tied up in probate because of changes you made to your life insurance policy. If this happens, your beneficiaries and final expenses would not be paid and it could take a long time to get it sorted out. To avoid this problem, you could purchase an additional policy naming your current spouse as beneficiary.
