Beneficiary Designation

Benefit ministry without any hassle.

Beneficiary designation allows you to give assets like a life insurance policy or retirement plan to ministry after your passing. It is one of the easiest and most tax-efficient ways to support Kingdom work, because updating a beneficiary designation doesn’t require changes to your will or trust.
