(1) If a contract seller enters into a preneed contract in which the consideration is the assignment of life insurance benefits, such preneed contract shall state that all or part of such assigned funds shall be paid to the contract seller to pay for the services or merchandise, or both, included in the preneed contract. The preneed contract and the assignment shall identify the policy being assigned including the name of the issuing company. The initial benefit assigned shall not exceed the preneed contract price when the assignment is executed. The purchaser of any insurance policy to be assigned under a preneed contract must have an insurable interest in the life of the preneed contract beneficiary.
(2) If the value of the assignment exceeds the price of the preneed contract services or merchandise, or both, at the time of the death of the preneed contract beneficiary, based on the general provider's general price list in force in accordance with the regulations of the federal trade commission, the excess amounts shall be paid to the beneficiary under the policy or, if none, to the estate of the preneed contract beneficiary.
