A Question about "upgrading" deceased or inaccessible members

A recent Family Finder has been tested for a living male (whose results are sponsored and managed by me).
He has transferred Y results from Ancestry. If he passes away, can the Family Finder sample be used to "upgrade" his Y results so that they can be matched, etc? The "beneficiary" item on his kit is set to me.

Does anyone know if there is a problem with that?
