Miller v. Miller
After life insurer under an ERISA-regulated employee welfare benefits plan paid the proceeds of the policy into the registry of the court, the court found that the competing beneficiary designations filed by the decedent's surviving spouse and decedent's sons were each void due to the decedent's lack of mental competence at the time the designations were executed, and, thus, the court held that the surviving spouse was the sole beneficiary under operation of the plan's terms.
