    If the primary beneficiary dies before you do, then the "contingent" beneficiary gets the money.

    Contingent beneficiary is the person or persons that you want your estate to go to in the event that your beneficiary is not living. Often on a life insurance or 401k a person will name their spouse as beneficiary. But in the case of an accident that may kill both you and your spouse you have the opportunity to designate someone else to receive the benefits.
