or persons for another's benefit in which the right to change the beneficiary is not
reserved, and such beneficiary dies during the lifetime of the person or persons whose
life or lives are insured by such insurance policy or policies, it shall be lawful
for such company to receive from the person or persons whose lives are insured an
affidavit setting forth the facts in the case; and if it shall appear from such affidavit
that the affiants have theretofore paid the annual premium on such policy or policies,
and intended thereby to insure for the benefit of the person or persons named in such

such policy or policies have not been assigned or transferred to any person or persons,
and nominating or appointing some other person or persons as beneficiary in place
of such deceased in such policy or policies named, it shall then be the duty of such
