Leaving a gift to IN-SIGHT through your retirement plan account (such as an IRA) is one of the most tax-wise gifts you can make. Most retirement plans are taxed differently than other funds.

Certificates of Deposit, Bank and Brokerage Accounts, and Life Insurance Policies

- CONTACT your retirement plan administrator, bank, broker, or insurance company and request a beneficiary form. This form—not your will—determines how these assets are distributed.
