    The proceeds of her life insurance policy

    The proceeds of her life insurance policy are ....

    Can we treat "The proceeds of her life insurance policy " as a single unit? If yes, is it correct to use "is" instead of "are" in the above sentence?

    The subject is plural. Use a plural verb.
