Contingent / Successor / Subrogated Policyowner

No one likes to think about passing away before their child reaches the age of majority, but it’s always a possibility. If it does happen and your client has not named a contingent/successor/subrogated policy owner, the minor may become the owner. As a minor, they cannot instruct us to make changes, including naming a new beneficiary. And without a legal guardian, policy instructions are limited and the minor and the minor’s estate become the owner and beneficiary. Parents are not legal guardians for the handling of a minor’s property (except in Quebec).

Instructions from a legal guardian or tuteur may also be limited as their instructions should not reduce the property of the minor.
