2017-2018 Meeting Schedule
September 26, 2017 – Speakers: Bill Northup and Caleb Hegna, “Beneficiary Designations from Two Perspectives”
Beneficiary designations are an important estate planning tool for individuals to support family and charities. While they can be a relatively simple and flexible tool, they can also create challenges and unintended consequences when not used correctly. Join Bill Northup, JD, Trust Manager with Lincoln Savings Bank and Caleb Hegna, Director of Gift Planning at UnityPoint Health – Des Moines Foundation, as they look at beneficiary designation from the perspective of a financial institution and a nonprofit planned giving program. They will explore the different types of beneficiary designations, how they can be used, ways to avoid issues and real-life examples.
