Retirement Plan Beneficiary Language
You may name Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic (Tax ID #20-5628911) as a beneficiary of your IRA or other qualified retirement benefits. Donors should consult with their tax advisor regarding the tax benefits of such gifts.
Naming Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic as the beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan asset such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, Keogh or profit-sharing pension plan will accomplish a charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings. It can be costly to pass such assets on to heirs because of heavy tax consequences. By naming Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, the donor maintains complete control over the asset while living, but at the donor’s death the plan passes to support Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic free of both estate and income taxes.
Making a charitable gift from your retirement plan is easy and should not cost you any attorney fees. Simply request a change-of-beneficiary form from your plan administrator. When you have finished, please return the form to your plan administrator and notify Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic. We can also assist you with the proper language for your beneficiary designation to the Clinic.
