My question involves a marriage in the state of: Pennsylvania
Recently I received notice I was the beneficiary of my ex wife's life insurance policy. She passed in 2002 and we were divorced in 1997 and I had no knowledge she even had a policy. I read where PA has a law that negates any benefits of an ex spouse regarding life insurance. Also, something where the Fed gov't's law (ERISA) overrides the PA state law.
Can anyone tell me if I am entitled to the proceeds of the life policy that names me as sole beneficiary? Thanks for the help.
