Who Needs A Trust?

You may benefit from a trust if:

  • Your beneficiaries are not ready to receive a lump sum inheritance (including grandchildren)
  • You own a real property in multiple states
  • Your total estate is above the estate tax exemption limits. (In Washington state, the 2020 the limit is $2.193M)
  • You require asset protection from creditors
  • You want to provide asset protection for a surviving spouse
  • You have a beneficiary who has special needs (including substance abuse and addiction)
  • A beneficiary is incarcerated
  • You are concerned about your beneficiaries' spouse(s)
  • You have a blended family
  • You may need protection from unintentional disinheritance
  • You want to eliminate opportunities for a family feud or emotional stress
Keep in mind that not every situation will require a trust.
It's best to speak with your advisor and attorney to determine which estate planning documents are necessary.

Why would someone want to designate

a trust company as trustee?

If you create a trust, you name a trustee - someone who holds title to a property and/or asset and manages or distributes them according to your wishes. We have a fiduciary responsibility to carry out your wishes, but without the emotional cost to family members.

We call this a FACT:
