What is a trust?
A trust is an effective estate planning tool. An individual is able to transfer property into a trust for the benefit of another individual, business, or charitable organization. A trustee has control over the assets within the trust, which are for the benefit of that individual. A trust can contain any type of assets:
- Real estate
- Business interests
- Other assets
Do I Need a Trust?
Trusts can also accomplish goals that a will cannot accomplish, for example:
- A trust can go into effect while you are still alive
- A trust can save you money now, and save your estate from excessive estate tax later
- A trust will not go through the time and expense of probate
- A trust can be used to pay for a college education
- A trust can protect assets for a person living in a nursing home, while providing ongoing financial support to pay for special needs
