If the account has a standard POD or pay on death beneficiary assignment, the beneficiary has no liability for bounced checks. The designation of the beneficiary isn’t final until the death of the owner. A beneficiary has no ownership interest in the account until the owner dies. Therefore, the beneficiary isn’t responsible for an overdraft in the account.
