I'm sure that when I signed up, I did not make Alcor the owner of my
policy. I believe I am the owner, and Alcor the beneficiary. If for some
reason I cannot be suspended, I have other arrangements for the
beneficiaries of my policy. However my contract was completed over a
decade ago, and I'm not sure if I remember correctly or I just think this
is correct. I'll call my insurance co, and let you know off list.

I don't know about group insurance.
