Can a judge compel the person named on a funeral cost insurance policy to sign for release of such funds to the funeral home to pay for funeral costs if the person named refuses to sign?

Most of the time, an insurance policy set up for funeral expenses will name the funeral home as the beneficiary. When the person dies, the pre-funded funeral would be enacted in the exact way the person had wanted.

If another person is named as the beneficiary, then upon the person's death, the money would go to the beneficiary to do with as they please. They wouldn't be required to pay for the funeral costs at all (unless they signed the funeral contract).

Sorry but everyone is right. The beneficiary can do whatever they want with the money. That is why is someone wants a certain funeral they should pay for it before they die.

The money belongs to the beneficiary and they can do whatever they want with the money. I know it is sad when people do not do the right thing, but that is the way it is.

Sorry.

There is no such thing as a "funeral cost insurance policy." There are life insurance policies, and the beneficiaries of those life insurance policies are under NO obligation to do anything with THEIR money.

If they don't want to contribute to the funeral, then nobody should complain. It's their money.

No. The money is theirs, to do whatever they want with. Just because it is a "funeral cost" policy, does NOT mean that that is how the money must be spent.
