A trust can benefit anyone with valuable assets, including real estate, automobiles, jewelry, collectibles and financial accounts. There are many types of trusts, from living trusts to provide for asset management in the event of incapacity, to special needs trusts for unique circumstances. While a Last Will remains an important part of any estate plan; it may not be enough to ensure the passing of assets to the right people at the right time.
Having a plan in place can remove your family’s stress of making decisions during difficult times. A trust lets you stay in control as long as you are willing and able, while giving you peace of mind that things will be taken care of if something happens.
