“My father needs to name a beneficiary on life insurance policy, can he name the executor of his will as the beneficiary and be divided among his six children?”

How would he word it on the form he needs to mail back? It sounds as if you are asking if the life insurance can be paid into his will, through the executor, and if that is your question, then the answer is “probably not.”

He should, however, be able to name the six children directly on the policy, which will accomplish the same effect.

However to be sure, he should simply ask the company that issued the insurance policy.
