Beneficiaries are VERY important:  Make sure your beneficiaries are up to date
A beneficiary is the person(s) who will receive the proceeds of your life insurance policy if you die. Since a main purpose of life insurance is to help ensure the financial wellness of your loved ones, you should make sure you name a beneficiary, and keep the information up to date. This will eliminate any confusion and avoid delays in getting your benefit to your loved ones. You can designate a beneficiary online in a few minutes with some basic information.
