Beneficiaries & Why They're Important



When it comes to planning, it's essential to think about having a beneficiary in the event you pass away. Having a beneficiary will remove the uncertainty of what will happen to your assets after you're gone. Below are a couple of reasons to have a Beneficiary.

  • It eliminates confusion – If you don't have a Beneficiary set up, it can leave everyone wondering what will happen with your assets and who gets what. When you have a designated beneficiary, it makes the process of allocating your assets easier and less stressful.
  • It will save your family time – Without a beneficiary set up, your assets can go to the state depending on your state's laws. Setting one up will help make sure that your assets go to your loved ones.
  • It can build financial wellness for your loved ones – Leaving behind assets to your loved ones can help them build future financial wellness.
