My boyfriend, who is on active duty in the Army, was recently diagnosed with COPD and says he will die any day now. I live in New York and his home town is also New York City. He listed me as a beneficiary on his SGLI life insurance policy to cover my student loans. On his policy he stated that I was his “cousin.” I know there’s no reason for him to lie about the relationship with a beneficiary, but I don’t want to bother him about changing it. He also says it’s not necessary to put social security numbers. He did list my address. Would this be sufficient for verification. What are the chances I will be denied a payout because he listed me as his cousin, and the omission of my SSN. I would rather for him to be alive than to benefit from his death, but if that was to happen I would also be hurt and disappointed if I don’t get the money he intended to help me with.
