When the primary beneficiary has died before the insured dies and no new primary beneficiary has been appointed

Under Common Disaster, the proceeds of a Life insurance policy will still go to the primary beneficiary if they outlive the insured by a specified number of days, often 30. However, if there is no primary beneficiary designated on a Life insurance policy at the time of an insureds death, the proceeds will go to the contingent beneficiary. Underage children may be designated as primary beneficiaries, although they cannot sign a release.
