Yes. The nomination form (sent out with your application) will give you the option to make a nomination in accordance with your wishes (immediate family including your spouse, civil partner, parent, child, grandchild, sibling, niece or nephew. Any nomination will be invalidated by a subsequent marriage or the death of the nominee.) You can also stipulate whether you would like the Society to make a payment towards your funeral expenses before paying out any balance of the claim and, unlike some other insurance plans, you’re free to choose the funeral director. You may amend the nomination at any time by writing to the Society. If you decide not to make a specific nomination, the sum assured will normally be paid to the executors or administrators of your estate, and your family may have to wait significantly longer to receive the policy proceeds.
