Turning Down the Money, Really?

no-money

It never occurred to me that a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or a retirement account could choose not to take the money. As a financial advisor and insurance agent, I found that most people were more concerned about having resources than giving them away. However, I did learn that sometimes beneficiaries may not want or need the money. In these cases the beneficiary can choose to decline payment and allow the money to move on to the next-in-line beneficiary or beneficiaries.

There are a variety of reasons why one beneficiary may wish to defer to other named beneficiaries. Please click here to learn more about disclaiming benefit in a retirement account.

LBJ, The Hill Country, Civil Rights, and My Full Circle Moment

Having a full circle moment!

Local TV is pre-empted for President Obama and other dignitaries at the LBJ Presidential Library for the 50th year celebration of the passing of the Civil Rights Act. The Johnson ranch is just down the road from Fredericksburg where we live, although the library is in Austin.

As a child my family lived outside D.C. because my dad’s government job took us there. I am the oldest child and one day my dad took me to the Capitol to see how Congress worked. It was after JFK and LBJ had been elected.

The day we were there I noticed two things. First it seemed like a crazy disorganized place with people coming and going and not always paying attention. It certainly wasn’t like school, didn’t live up to my expectations, and I was wondering what my dad was thinking by taking me there.

The second was that my dad pointed out that Vice President Johnson was there that day, presiding as the President of the Senate. Now that was impressive and a memory I still treasure. I certainly didn’t know anything about LBJ or Texas.  On that day I  couldn’t even imagine that one day Vice President Johnson would become President Johnson, that there was even such a thing as civil rights, or that  I be  living in his beloved hill country and blogging and writing as part of a movement to share financial management basics to women to improve their lives.

Until next time!
