Retirement Planning/FDIC

Question
I once read an article on increasing FDIC coverage above the individual limit by using Payable-on-death (POD) bank accounts with a charitable organization as a small beneficiary in a new IRA CD. However, I have been unable to find the article. Do you know of a good source of information on how to accomplish this task?
Thank you

Answer
Dear A

No, neither do I have any idea why you would find such a plan as practical. If your desire is to make a deferred gift to a charity with the intention of the charity getting the benefit paid at your death, a life insurance policy would do it better, and the premiums could be deductible.
