Selecting the right people to help with your trust is crucial
You’ve worked hard your entire life to fulfill your own American dream. Maybe you got married and started a family, maybe a successful career was more important to you. Whatever your situation, it is important to protect the assets you’ve earned over the years and decades of your career. It is never too early to protect all that you hold dear by exploring estate planning options to assure that your assets are properly distributed when your time comes to a close.
The first step in assuring that your desires will be met at the time of your death, or even before your death, is to determine who will be your estate’s trustee. This may be a family member or even close friend, but as the title suggests, it should be someone who is trustworthy; you want someone you know will act on your behalf and work to make certain that all your wishes are met when you are unable to make these decisions yourself.
There are very important decisions that need to be made, and it is essential that both you and your trustee fully understands the responsibilities of the position. It is also important that the trust, whether it is a revocable trust, or living trust to be carried out while you are still alive or a contingent trust, which involves directives after your death, it is imperative that all parties know what needs to be done.
