Part 3, entitled Uniform TOD Security Registartion Act, of Chapter 5, entitled Nonprobate Transfers, of the California Probate Code, is designed to encourage transfer on death accounts. The beneficiary has no rights until the owner of the account dies. The owner can change the beneficiary at any time. So, no, the beneficiary is not entitled to notice (from anyone) until the owner dies. Only the owner has the information. Section 5502 simply addresses who can obtain registration in beneficiary form.
