WHO WAS THE “BENEFICIARY?”

(Jul. 5, 2018) — [Editor’s Note: The widow of civilian contractor Thomas J. Boyle, Jr. has released Part 6 of a video series she created detailing the inconsistencies and denial of life insurance benefits associated with his death in Kandahar, Afghanistan on June 19, 2012.

Instead of his family receiving benefits after he was killed during an insurgent attack on an Army base, Mrs. Boyle reports that her husband’s employer, which reportedly purchased a “dead peasant” policy on her husband’s life, received a substantial payout after he died. Such policies have been the subject of considerable controversy and a lawsuit won by a group of plaintiffs against Walmart in 2006.
Mrs. Boyle was further denied life insurance benefits by five insurers who invoked a “war risk” exclusion even though they were aware, when granting Mr. Boyle the policies, that he was deployed in a high-risk part of the world.]
