Is This Gift Right for You?

Four yes/no questions can help you decide if changing the beneficiary of a life insurance policy is right for you.

If you can answer yes to each of the following questions, you may find that it makes good sense for you to name us as the beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy. If not, we can help you find an option that's a better fit.
  • Do you have a life insurance policy that provides coverage you no longer need?
  • Do you want to retain the flexibility to change your mind at any time in the future, if you decide you'll need the insurance proceeds for another reason?
  • Are income tax benefits not a particular concern for you this year?
  • Would you like to provide substantial financial support for our mission in the future?
