I am a trustee in a trust with two other individuals one of which passed away. The trust holds an insurance policy that is to be distributed equally between the surviving trustees. In order for the insurance company to release the funds both trustees must sign the petition or claim forms on behave of the trust. Is there any case law or laws that will allow the insurance company to divide the life insurance proceed between the two surviving trustees since the trustees do not get along. the insurance company wants to issue the check to the trust, can it be made to issue it equally to the trustees?
