By establishing a "Transfer-on-Death" (TOD) or "Payable-on-Death" (POD) provision,
you can transfer assets to Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc., without the
expense of a will or trust. A TOD is generally only used for investable assets, such as
securities, bonds, and mutual funds. A POD is very similar to a TOD, but it deals with
savings accounts, money market accounts, and CDs. You can also transfer Totten Trusts and some checking accounts.
Through a TOD or POD arrangement, you can bypass the delays and costs associated
with probate and qualify for an estate tax charitable deduction. You do not have to work
with an attorney or accountant or prepare or revise a will. To name Planned Parenthood
as the beneficiary, you will need to notify the manager of your financial institution and
complete the necessary designation forms. Please be sure to include our complete
information so your gift will be processed accurately:
Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc.
434 West 33rd Street, New York, New York 10001
501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization
TOD and POD provisions are fully reversible; you can change or remove the
designation at any time prior to your death, in almost all cases without cost. It is
important to note that states laws govern TOD and POD designations. Your financial
institution will provide the correct forms based on your state of residence.
Please contact us so that we can assist you through every step of the process.
