LIFE INSURANCE BENEFICIARY DISPUTES
Sponsored by Merrill Lynch (The Maynard Group) and PlainsCapital Bank
The owner of a life insurance policy designates the beneficiary to receive the funds upon the insured’s death. But there are numerous grounds for disputing payment of life insurance benefits. The presentation will review whether a given policy is governed by Texas or federal law and why that analysis is so important. Like wills, beneficiary designations can be attacked on the basis that they were the result of undue influence or that the owner lacked sufficient mental capacity to make or change a designation. Other common issues include attempted designations and marital property rights in life insurance proceeds. J. Michael Young is a civil litigation attorney at the Sherman firm of Sanders, Motley, Young & Gallardo. He has an active litigation practice in both state and federal courts. He has practiced for over twenty years, with a focus in the past decade on estate and life insurance beneficiary disputes. He has a finance degree from UT Austin and JD and MBA degrees from the University of Houston.
