Bring Comfort to Your Loved Ones
With the crisp fall weather, it’s time to pull warmer clothes out from your closet. As you bring out your favorite sweater, take a moment to think about the other things that bring comfort:
Did you know that you can leave a wonderful legacy to benefit your family, friends, and charities like Stonecroft using money you no longer need?
Consider your checking, savings, investment, and retirement accounts. By using the beneficiary designation form supplied by your administrator, you can name the people or causes you want to receive what’s left of these accounts when you pass away.
Just like the warmth of a familiar sweater, knowing you have helped others this season is a great feeling.
