A look at testamentary trusts

by | Jan 19, 2019 | Firm News, Trust Administration

When it comes to trusts, there are many different options for people to choose from. However, it is essential to find out which trust will suit your needs best. In this blog, we will examine some of the ins and outs of testamentary trusts, which can be a bit confusing at first glance. These trusts offer a number of benefits for some people and help them ensure that their assets are passed on to their loved ones properly. As with any type of estate-related issue, it is imperative to make sure you thoroughly review the details beforehand.

First of all, it is important to point out that testamentary trusts arise after the testator passes away. These trusts, which are specified in a person’s will, can address either a portion of his or her estate or the entire estate. Moreover, someone may have multiple testamentary trusts. These trusts can be beneficial for a variety of reasons. First, they can be helpful with respect to life insurance policy proceeds as well as settlements from legal action after the testator has passed away.

While testamentary trusts offer a number of potential advantages, there are also some drawbacks associated with this option. As a result, it is pivotal to carefully review the responsibilities that arise due to testamentary trusts and all of your estate planning options to make sure that you are fully confident in the decisions you make. In addition to testamentary trusts, there are many other options when it comes to trusts, which we discuss on our site.
