My husband had life insurance through his employer - both an employer paid policy as well as suplemental employee paid. When he origianally started working there in 2000 he designated his ex-wife as beneficiary (they were still legally married at the time) In 2003, we were married and he filled out a new form listing me as his beneficiary. (which we foolishly didn't make a copy of!)

My husband died this past February.

Now that it is time to collect the life insurance they are telling me that the replacement form name me isn't in their records! So the whole lot is being left to his ex-wife.

Would you recommend contesting a beneficiary under such circumstances?

I was made beneficiary on a company policy for my uncle in the 80s. He was staying with a cousin in his early stages of Alzheimers before his placement in a nursing home. After his death, I learned that my cousin was made beneficiary post dementia. The insurance company will not disclose any information to me as sole heir and executor of his estate. What are my options.

Consult a legal advisor for more details.

You can contest the beneficiary change, but you'll need to prove that your uncle was incompetent at the time or was vulnerable and had been tricked.

Remember, you can't take it for granted that a patient with dementia can't author a valid will.

I just came across this post when I was searching about it. You can check it out:
