Beneficiary vs. Joint Owner

5/10/2022

Beneficiary vs. Joint Owner

Do you know the difference between having a joint owner and a beneficiary on all of your accounts?

We break it down for you in simple terms here:

Joint Owner

A joint owner on your account is someone with whom all funds are shared during your lifetime. This is a great option for two people who want to share an account and funds. For example, a couple could have a joint account to save together for a common goal or to pay household bills.

 

Beneficiary

A beneficiary named on your account allows you to choose who will have access to your funds after your passing. This is a great option for providing your loved ones with your clear intentions after you are gone.

 

Naming a joint owner or beneficiary is easy, contact the credit union today for details.
