Bank Accounts at banks, savings and loan associations, and credit unions

Return to Retirement Plans & Other Beneficiary Designations Home

People who have financial accounts at banks, savings and loan associations and credit unions generally may direct that their deposits (checking, savings, share accounts, certificates of deposit) be paid on death ("POD") to a particular individual — or to KQED. The designation can be revoked any time prior to death and in no way affects the depositor's control over the funds in the account.

How: Ask the manager of your account for details and the appropriate form. Use KQED's legal name, "KQED Inc.," and Taxpayer ID No., 94-1241309.

For more information: please complete our request for information form or contact us.
