RICHARDS LAW PLEASE HELP REMOVE THE DISCRETIONARY WORD
My son died in his sleep just age 29 years old he was a professional footballer he was fit and healthy he held a death in service policy which he placed his wishes to who he wanted to be contacted in the event of his death.
When contacting the company IN QEUSTION after my son’s death they told me there was no paperwork with my name on (his mother) it took me three years under the 1998 data protect act to get a copy of this document from the company to prove I was named.
I was told that the death in-service document was not legally binding even though it was signed by my son and witnessed.
I was then told that the death in service policy was discretionary which meant the TRUSTEES OF THE POLICY IN QUESTION CAN DO AS THEY WISH THEY SEEM TO BE ASWESABLE TO NO BODY THEY do not have to tell you anything even though you are named on the document and they decide what to do with the death in service policy even though you are named.
What I wish to achieve with my petition is for the discretionary word to be removed so in the event of your death your wishes will be followed through so trustees who have never met you or your family in their lives cannot change your wishes or your decision in the event of your death.
YOUR WISHES SHOULD STAND AND SHOULD BE UP HELD
Please signed my petition and help me change the law thank you.
