Failure to name at least two “backup” beneficiaries

Failed to check policies at least every 3 years

All the insurance is owned by the insured

No investigation to see if the insured’s business can provide insurance on a more cost- or tax-efficient basis

Forgot that term insurance (including group term coverage) will self-terminate or become prohibitively expensive to carry
