Insurance Question from Kingston, TN

Asked on 10/25/2011

I have reason to believe my ex wife has taken out a life insurance policy on me. I have been receiving a lot of mail addressed to my ex wife but under my last name lately. The mail is all from the same insurance company and seems to be legitimate, as it contains personal information about her and states that she has been interested in insuring "our family". I know my ex wife very well and she has been in court many times trying to sue people for money, and isn't exactly happy about me being alive. How can I look into this further, and if the insurance company won't cooperate, what can I do from there to stop this? Thank you.

To put a life insurance policy on someone life, you have to have “insurable interest”. Being your ex-wife, she would not have insurable interest.  This would mean that the insurance policy would require your signature.  Call the insurance company that from which you are receiving the mail. Ask them if there has been an application for life insurance to insure you. Express you concerns.  They should be to let you knowif you have a valid concern.
