If you haven't named a beneficiary or if your named beneficiary dies before you, your Life Insurance will be paid to the first of the following successive classes of survivors: your spouse, your children, your parents, your brothers and sisters, or your estate. If there is more than one survivor in the class payment is made to, the survivors in that class will share equally.
