Experienced Trust Preparation

Have you considered preparing a trust? While it can be challenging to think about what could happen after you are gone, a trust allows for control over how your assets are dispersed in the event of your death. This can be a valuable estate planning tool depending on your situation. The best way to make sure you are sufficiently prepared for the future is by contacting a trust attorney.

What Are the 4 Types of Trust?

Each type of trust has its own rules, benefits, and structure. Which one you choose will depend on your unique financial needs and how you’d like your current and future assets to be managed. While there are several trust types divided into specific subcategories, there are four main types that they can be classified into.

The four common types of trust are:

  • Living Trust (Inter Vivos Trust): Created while the grantor is still alive, a living trust allows for the efficient transfer of assets to beneficiaries, successfully avoiding probate and therefore saving time and money later on.
  • Testamentary Trust: Set up after death in response to the contents of your last will and testament, this is a flexible trust option since its terms can be modified at any time up until the benefactor’s death.
  • Revocable Trust: A type of living trust, the terms of a revocable trust can be altered during the grantor’s lifetime.
  • Irrevocable Trust: Created primarily to transfer assets out of a taxable estate, the terms of an irrevocable trust cannot be adjusted after creation. However, income from the assets is not taxable before or after the death of the benefactor.
