AS 21.42.270. Assignment of Policies.

A policy may be assignable or nonassignable, depending upon its terms. Subject to its terms relating to its assignability, a life, group life, or health insurance policy, whether issued before or after July 1, 1966, under the terms of which the beneficiary may be changed upon the sole request of the insured, may be assigned either by pledge or transfer of title by an assignment executed by the insured alone and delivered to the insurer, whether or not the pledgee or assignee is the insurer. The assignment entitles the insurer to deal with the assignee as the owner or pledgee of the policy in accordance with the terms of the assignment until the insurer has received at its home office written notice of termination of the assignment or pledge, or written notice by or on behalf of some other person claiming an interest in the policy that is in conflict with the assignment.
