Not necessarily. The insured is the person whose life, health or property is insured under the policy. While the insured may also be the owner, it may also be someone or something (if an entity) different. Typically, the owner pays the premiums, has the right to change beneficiaries, and possesses other indicia of ownership.

Usually the owner of the policy designated on the application for insurance. It is important for the insurer to know the identity of the owner from the standpoint of knowing from whom to take direction as to policy changes as discussed above.

Can you leave life insurance to the insured if so how?

I guess what your question is how to transfer the ownership of insurance policy to the insured if they are different person. The owner of policy can simply sign the form called "policy ownership absolute transfer form" which you can find it through your insurance advisor. If the owner passed away, and you had assigned contingent owner when you applied the insurance, that ownership will be automatically transferred to the contingent owner. Hope it answers your question.
