Can an emancipated minor get a life-insurance payout and make a will? (+Medical decisions)

Setting: Northern California, 2014 (Show/fandom: Teen Wolf)

Goal: 17-year-old is murdered, and his family of choice (whom he has no biological or legal relationship to) abruptly inherit his old house and a large sum of money, which they are blindsided by. Before that, he was briefly hospitalized, and this family made medical decisions for him.

Researched: I tried to research what I could about emancipation in California, but most of what I found was just on how to get emancipation in the first place, not nuances of what minors can and cannot do once emancipated.
