To name or change a beneficiary on a life insurance policy, contact your insurance company to obtain a Change of Beneficiary Form.  If you would like to designate Animal Rescue, Inc. as a beneficiary, decide what percentage of the policy proceeds (for example, from 1% to 100%) you would like us to receive and name Animal Rescue, Inc. along with that percentage on the Change of Beneficiary Form.  Be sure to return the signed and completed form to your insurance company.

To name or change a beneficiary on an IRA or other retirement account, contact the administrator of the IRA or retirement plan to obtain a Change of Beneficiary Form.  If you would like to designate Animal Rescue, Inc. as a beneficiary, decide what percentage of the plan’s value (for example, from 1% to 100%) you would like us to receive and name Animal Rescue, Inc. along with that percentage on the Change of Beneficiary Form.  Be sure to return the signed and completed form to the administrator of the IRA or retirement plan.

There’s also an added benefit to naming Animal Rescue, Inc. in your Will as a beneficiary in a Residual Bequest:  Should any of your loved ones die before you, you would not have to redo your Will – their share in your estate would automatically pass to Animal Rescue, Inc. and be used to aid homeless animals.
