Dear JA Customer
I am sorry to hear about your partner's death.
As regards XXXXX XXXXX it is very likely that you are the only person entitled to te term assurance policy proceeds, (and the property). However, your partner's wife may have been making a financial claim on divorce, and can therefore make a similar claim on death under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1974. I would not worry about this just yet as you are the sole beneficiary until and unless a claim is made. If a claim is made, you will need to take formal legal advice.
