It is important to review your beneficiary designations regularly (once every 12 months) to ensure it reflects your current situation. Careful planning and consideration should be taken to ensure that the current situation is properly reflected in your designation and that the proceeds reach the intended hands. If you have recently experienced a Life Event or a change in family status, it may be a good time to review your beneficiary(ies).
Why should I designate a beneficiary?
Designating a named beneficiary(ies) ensures that proceeds from your death benefit do not form part of your estate in the event of your death. This will prevent the application of probate fees and ensure that the proceeds are not subject to the creditors of the estate. Additionally naming your beneficiary(ies) under a policy gives you control over who will receive proceeds from your death benefit.
If you do not name a beneficiary, death benefits will be paid to your estate and will be subject to estate taxes, and may be vulnerable to claims from creditors.
