Forming a Trust

End of Life Management Toolkit #7 | by Team Passare and Robert L. Shepard

Forming a trust is something everyone should do, regardless of estate size. Does the word “estate” conjure up images of a magnificent property with a tennis court, manicured lawns, and a swimming pool? Many people make the mistake of believing that unless they own property like Rockefeller, they don’t need to plan their estate.

While the government ultimately dictates what happens to your estate, forming a trust can help you determine how your estate and its assets will be distributed. Do you want to be the one to determine how your estate and its assets will be distributed? A common element of a basic estate plan includes a trust agreement. If you own real estate, or your beneficiaries are minors, then a trust is an important tool to consider.
