Legal Question in Wills and Trusts in North Carolina

Life insurance payment

My son recently passed away. His wife of 17 years was left everything in his will. However, I was the beneficary on his life insurance which he bought before the marrage. I have received the $50,000.00 insurance but now his wife wants me to give the money to her, because of the will. I am in FL, she is in NC.

Question: Does she have any legal claim that would force me to give her the money or any part of it?

Thank you

Re: Life insurance payment

No. Since you were the named beneficiary its distribution goes outside the estate.
