Naming Holocaust Museum LA as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy is easy regardless if you have your own policy or a policy through your employer. You may also consider naming the Museum as a beneficiary of an IRA, 401(k), 403(b) or other qualified retirement plan helping you avoid substantial income and estate taxes.
