    • Beneficiary Designation Checklist
      You have probably designated beneficiaries for specific assets throughout your lifetime. Situations may change over time. Periodically reviewing your will and beneficiary choices is crucial to ensuring your assets wind up with the loved one or charity you intend.

      The Beneficiary Designation Checklist is an efficient way to keep your choices up-to-date. Take time to complete the checklist and share a copy with your estate attorney, financial advisor, and administrators of your various retirement or investment accounts.

      Keep your copy handy and refer to it at least annually, or whenever you, a family member or one of your beneficiaries experiences a life-altering event such as

      • marriage or divorce
      • birth of a child
      • death of a named beneficiary
      Regardless of the reason, be sure to contact your financial advisor, life insurance companies and/or the administrators of your various retirement accounts to ensure your choice of beneficiary is updated should you decide to make a change.
