A Will is Not the Only Way
We know that while you can’t predict the future, you can prepare for it. Plan ahead for incapacity with a Revocable Living Trust, a legal document that—unlike a will—does double duty: setting forth how you want your assets managed and distributed upon your death and in the event of your incapacity. This way, if you’re ever unable to manage your own finances, a court doesn’t need to get involved to appoint someone to manage your financial affairs.
A Little Trust Goes a Long Way
Who Needs a Trust
Your Peace of Mind is Always on Our Mind
During your lifetime, you serve as the trustee of your trust, provided you have mental capacity. You must also designate a back-up trustee, who—upon your death or incapacity—must step into your shoes and manage trust assets for your benefit or that of your loved ones. You can choose almost anyone to serve as your back-up trustee – a family member, a friend, an accountant or a corporate trustee, like Members Trust Company.
