IF you are still the beneficiary on file for your ex-spouse then you are legally entitled to that money.

How can you find if you are a beneficiary of a will?

If the person has died, if you are beneficiary, the executor is required to notify you. If they are still alive, the only way is to ask them. There is no requirement that they tell you!

Does the executor of the will have authority over how the beneficiary spends the insurance money?

No, executors are only involved in determining who to give money to, but they can't control what is done with the money by the people who receive it. Once you inherit money it is yours, to do with as you will. Sometimes wills have conditions attached to them. For example, my son will inherit $50,000 but only after he gets married. That restricts his ability to inherit the money, by placing a condition on the inheritance. However, once he does get married and does inherit the money, he can still spend it any way he chooses. If I were to say "My son will inherit $50,000 but I require him to spend it wisely" there is no way to enforce that. I might advise him to spend his money wisely, but in the end he will spend it the way he wishes, wisely or foolishly.

Who collects the life insurance if the policy holder and beneficiary have died?

If the beneficiary of a policy has died, the estate of the beneficiary can still collect the insurance payment, assuming that the beneficiary does have an heir or heirs of some kind (as most people do). Note that this is a fairly unusual situation, because normally when a beneficiary dies, a new beneficiary is named. There is no reason to allow the policy to have no living beneficiary, unless the insured and the beneficiary happen to die at about the same time, and there is no time to name a new beneficiary.
