Designating an individual and/or ministry as the benefactor of your LCEF investments ensures your assets go where you want them to after your passing. You may change your designation at any time and split the funds however you wish.
To designate or change existing beneficiaries, you must complete a Beneficiary Designation Form (PDF).
Please note that if you are married and the primary beneficiary is not your spouse, it is required that he or she acknowledge that he or she agrees to the named beneficiary by signing your Beneficiary Designation Form. By signing, your spouse also acknowledges that he or she has received a fair and reasonable disclosure of your property and financial obligations and they shall have no claim whatsoever against LCEF for payments to your named beneficiary.
You have the option of including LCEF on your list of designated beneficiaries. Your prayerful support allows LCEF to continue working for the expansion of God’s Kingdom by keeping the costs of loans and services for ministries and rostered church workers low.
If you have questions about designating a beneficiary, please call 800-843-5233 or contact us.
Contact us at 800-843-5233 to discuss your request and obtain the necessary forms to complete the modification.
Because you are a valuable partner in ministry with the Lutheran Church Extension Fund, we invite you to participate in a customer satisfaction survey. The goal of this survey is to collect feedback on better ways to serve you so we can provide you the best possible experience. It takes just a few minutes to complete.
Thank you for your time and attention!
