How to proceed

Making The First Church of Christ, Scientist the beneficiary of a life insurance policy is as simple as calling the company or your agent and asking for a change of beneficiary form. For more complex options, we would be pleased to have discussions with you at any time.

We are pleased to advise you:

  1. Our correct legal name and address, or other information that may be required, for the purpose of the new beneficiary designation and/or change of ownership on the records of the life insurance company
  2. The details of the transfer process, if you are giving a new or existing policy
  3. Your approximate tax deduction, if you will be transferring full ownership in the policy
  4. How additional premium payments and future deductible contributions are satisfied


You will need to share with us:

  1. The type and face value of the life insurance policy you plan to contribute
  2. Whether the policy is paid up or whether premiums remain to be paid
  3. Whether the Church will be simply a beneficiary or the owner of the policy


You can contact our office at, by phone at 1-800-288-7155, extension 3288, or write to us at the address below. We look forward to hearing from you.
