Have You Notified Your Beneficiaries of Your Gift?

Naming a loved one or favorite charity such as the Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan assets is a heartfelt way to show you care. Be sure to go one step farther and notify those beneficiaries of the choices you’ve made.

Sometimes, charitable organizations are unaware they have been named to receive a gift. Informing them helps preserve your intentions and ensures your beneficiaries are able to follow your wishes.

Protect the people and charities you love by following these simple steps in naming your beneficiaries:

  • As circumstances change throughout your lifetime, be sure to review your beneficiary designations periodically.
  • Alert your beneficiaries that you have a life insurance policy or have named them as a beneficiary of a retirement plan.
  • Share the location and details of the policy or plan with your beneficiaries. 

As you update your beneficiary designations, please consider making a gift of a life insurance policy or retirement plan assets to the Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge. Then, please notify us of your decision. That way, we can carry out your wishes as intended and thank you for your generous gift.
