Thank you for your question.

If the selected beneficiary is deceased, or in the event that there is no beneficiary selected, the funds would simply be poured into your sister-in-law's estate. If nobody has probated your sister-in-law's estate, you should speak to an attorney about starting that process. Our office represents executors and administrators (representatives) of estates, and would be happy to assist you.
