Why use retirement assets to make a gift?

 

Since retirement plan assets may be subject to both income and estate

taxes if left to heirs, estate planners often recommend that you designate all or a portion of the assets to a charitable organization like the Dementia Society of America. By leaving such assets to the Dementia Society of America, you can pass other assets to your heirs which may lower the tax burden.

 

How can I name the Dementia Society of America?

 

You should request a “change of beneficiary” form from your retirement plan administrator.  On this form you can name the Dementia Society of America as sole or partial beneficiary, or you can name us as a contingent beneficiary in case you are predeceased by your immediate beneficiary.
