Can my spouse who is active duty remove me as his beneficiary of his life insurance policy without my consent?
We got married in state of NY; still married; he's in army.
I can perfectly well understand your concerns here and your feeling of not only shock but worry being that he is in the armed forces. But if your husband is the owner of the policy then he can change the beneficiary at any time and to any person. But there is a light at the end of this tunnel for you. You have what is known under the law as an "insurable interest" by virtue of the fact that you are married to him. So you yourself can take out a life insurance policy on him without his consent. I would speak with someone as soon as you can regarding this matter and how much of a policy you can take out without having to have him go for a physical, etc. Good luck.
