Trust beneficiaries can only be added to an IRA or ESA account. To add a trust beneficiary, we need to identify the parties in the trust and the trust must be irrevocable upon death of the account holder. To allow this verification, please send the following two items along with your Capital One Investing℠ IRA or ESA account number:
- A letter requesting that we add the trust as a beneficiary. The letter must be signed and notarized or stamped with a Medallion Signature Guarantee.
- A copy of the trust, or a trust certificate.
