6. Summary of Trust Benefits

A trust agreement is a document that contains instructions to direct the trustee on how to manage property for the benefit of the designated beneficiaries.

Trusts can be categorized in several different ways, including:

  • living verses testamentary
  • revocable verses irrevocable
  • funded verses unfunded
  • self-trusteed versues third-party trusteed trusts

Forming a trust can be an excellent way to control the distribution of your assets in a private and efficient manner.
