I think we've already spent more time on the payout vs. not payout than they will in the show, I suspect they'll go by this point very quickly (I reserve the right to be completely wrong on this)

Yes, if an employee retires, not resigns. Difference between paid-up insurance and a monthly/yearly premium policy as well.

The events happened so close together, it's fuzzy.

I'm with smeek in that I hope they don't spend a lot of time fussing over insurance or any of the details of Lane's death. I'd like them to move on.
no. The beneficiary of ANY policy remains the same until changed by the policy owner. As the firm bought the policy, it is not likely they changed the beneficiary. It will be paid to the firm, no question. His resignation has zero to do with it.

Then maybe you shouldn't QUOTE the spoiler in your own post, huh? Maybe?

Another non-informed opinion. Once a policy is issued it can only be cancelled by the owner not the issuing company (unless fraud upon application is discovered in which case all paid premiums would be refunded and the policy rescinded) and the future status of the insured is irrelevant. The owner of the policy may continue to pay the full premium and receive the full policy face amount upon the death of the insured or it may exercise one of the non-forfeiture options available in the policy which may include a reduced paid-up amount of insurance or extended term insurance for the full face amount for a period depending on the premiums previously paid.

This is far off the topic of the thread but so much mis-information based on only opinion has been posted it needed to be cleared up.

Firewall and Iceberg is a TV podcast, but they usually spend a good 20-30 minutes on Mad Men. When I load onto my iPhone, it shows in the description what shows at what minute marker they discuss, so I just skip to the Mad Men stuff.

(The audio quality is not the best, especially if you're used to professional podcasts, but I got past that eventually.)

ESPN's Grantland Network has a pretty good podcast called "The Hollywood Prospectus" which generally discusses what is good on right now, which means Mad Men and Game of Thrones. It's not all that in-depth, though, just a TV critic and pop culture critic talking about what they found interesting in the particular week's ep.

There's also "Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan" where Maureen Ryan and Ryan McGee discuss TV and usually break down the most recent ep of Mad Men. It also has time codes like Firewall and Iceberg so you can just skip to the content you want to hear.
