Trust funds can be used to transfer assets to a beneficiary and to protect assets from governmental agencies and financial misuse.
There are two main types of trusts — revocable trusts and irrevocable trusts. Revocable trusts may be used in place of a will when there is an unequal distribution of assets among family members. With these trusts, your family can avoid probate. Irrevocable trusts transfer assets and money to a family member for the purpose of Medicare and Medicaid planning. They can also be used for tax planning.
We can also help you set up the following:
- AB trusts / credit shelter trusts
- Special needs trusts
- 253 trusts
- Income only trusts
- Charitable trusts
- Qualified personal residence trusts
