Using Revocable Living Trusts

Revocable living trusts are a fantastic option for people who want more privacy and control over their money. They can provide you with control over your assets and allow you to determine what happens to your money after you have passed away.

How A Revocable Living Trust Benefits You

Living trusts truly help you in a few key ways.

  • Allow Access to Assets. A living trust allows the family to access your assets without delay in the event of your death.
  • Control what happens to your property in the event of incapacity. A living trust lets you name a successor trustee to manage your trust assets in the event you become incapacitated, thus possibly avoiding the need for a court appointed conservator.
  • Avoid Court Probate Proceedings and Keep your assets private. For many people, the establishment of a revocable living trust keeps what happens to those assets private even during probate. It can also save costs associated with the transfer of assets at death by not having to probate the assets that are instead in the trust.
