How can I designate a beneficiary for my IRA?

A beneficiary for an IRA held through GuideStone Trust Services is designated initially on your application. If you are married and no designation was given, your primary beneficiary is your spouse and the secondary beneficiary defaults to your estate. If you are single and no designation was given, the default beneficiary is your estate.

If you need to change or update your beneficiary, you must send in a maintenance form.
