Changing the beneficiary through the Will

An insured cannot change the beneficiary designation by a provision in his will. The person named as beneficiary in an insurance policy will receive the insurance money no matter what is stated in a will.

It is only when either the estate is named the beneficiary or no one is named as beneficiary that the proceeds end up in the probate process and may be distributed according to the will of the person who died.
