Do You Have a Named Beneficiary?
Do you have a named beneficiary on your life insurance, retirement, and investment accounts? You should always name a beneficiary and a contingent beneficiary and review your choices periodically. Without a named beneficiary, or if a beneficiary dies before you do, upon your death, the proceeds normally end up as part of your estate, which causes a probate to be necessary. The probate process can be time consuming, costly, and frustrating. It is best to be proactive and review your estate plan regularly.
