How many beneficiaries can you name on a life insurance policy?

You can name several people as your beneficiaries if you'd like. However, keep in mind that, if you name more than one beneficiary, you then have to decide how you want the money split up between them. Usually, the best way to divide up the money is by percentage. (For example: 50%/50%, 65%/35%, 50%/25%/25%, etc.)
