My ex-wife passed away. I’m the beneficiary on her life insurance. Her family wants me to pay her funeral expenses and won’t leave me alone

I am 32, and just a month ago I found out that my ex-wife, whom I haven’t spoken to since we divorced, passed away tragically in a moped accident. My ex-wife had life insurance through her job. My ex-mother-in-law informed my father that my ex-wife had kept me as her beneficiary on her life-insurance policy, and her family wants the money for funeral costs, bills, etc.
Wink’s Note: Have you ever wondered what would happen if you forgot to change your beneficiary, after divorcing your ex?
This guy did.
On the other hand, I didn’t.
I know what happens. My ex got half of my son’s life insurance money and did nothing to help with the expenses. -sjm
