Return to Retirement Plans & Other Beneficiary Designations Home

Life Insurance
One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to include KQED in your estate plans is through life insurance. For example, you might make us the beneficiary or alternative beneficiary of a policy that is no longer needed for family security. You may also be entitled to a charitable deduction for the approximate cash value if you also transfer ownership in the policy to KQED.

How: Simply ask the insurance company for the forms necessary to change the beneficiary or to transfer ownership in the policy to our name. Use KQED's legal name "KQED Inc.," and Taxpayer ID No. 94-1241309, if needed. Keep in mind that KQED can be the beneficiary of just part of a policy (50%, for example), and that gifts from group life or term policies are also possible.
