confirm with a local lawyer, but i would be concerned. if the proceeds are paid to the estate because the listed beneficiaries have predeceased the policy holder, the creditor may be able to pursue them.

Estate Litigation
Most estates go through the probate process in a smooth manner. But if a family member feels that he or she has been wronged, disputes can occur. From voided wills to looted estates, from accounting disputes to disagreements over the sale of assets, an estate litigation attorney can represent either the estate itself or beneficiaries in the event of a contested will, contested trust and/or allegations of wrongdoing. Estate litigation lawyers and law firms can also work with families if guardianship is being contested.
