Surviving spouses entitled to maintenance can receive maintenance due to them from the deceased's estate in a lump sum, rather than in periodic maintenance payments, as was previously the case. But the estate may be diminished by the proceeds of long-term policies going directly to beneficiaries, rather than being considered to be part of the estate. This was the finding of the Appeal Court in the recent case of Oshry v Feldman (2010) ZASCA 95.
