Having A Trust May Be Beneficial For Your Estate Plan

The Benefits Of Adding A Trust To Your Estate Plan
There are many types of trusts:
- A living trust gives you complete control of your assets while you are living and allows those assets to pass directly to your beneficiaries after you die.
- A special-needs trust allows you to provide assets to a disabled person without making him or her ineligible for Medicaid and other government benefits.
- A life insurance trust removes assets from an estate and can help you minimize estate taxes.
- A beneficiary trust can protect the assets you give your children from creditors or issues such as divorce.
We will work with you to determine whether a trust can help you meet your estate planning goals. Attorney William S. Dunlevy can provide you with the objective, clearheaded advice you need to choose confidently from a variety of legal options.
