All About Trusts
Presented by Morgan Legal Group, Boca Raton, Florida
Revocable Living Trusts
A revocable living trust is a flexible estate planning tool that allows you to retain control over your assets during your lifetime while avoiding probate upon your passing. With a revocable living trust, you have the ability to amend or revoke the trust at any time, giving you the freedom to make changes as your circumstances evolve.
An irrevocable trust is a powerful estate planning instrument that, once established, typically cannot be modified or revoked without the consent of the named beneficiaries. Assets placed in an irrevocable trust are typically removed from your taxable estate, providing potential tax benefits. This trust type is commonly used for wealth preservation and asset protection.
Special Needs Trusts
A special needs trust (a supplemental needs trust) is designed to provide financial support to individuals with disabilities without jeopardizing their eligibility for government assistance programs. These trusts are carefully crafted to enhance the quality of life for the beneficiary while safeguarding their access to crucial benefits and services.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
A charitable remainder trust allows you to make a charitable gift while still retaining an income stream from the donated assets. This trust type can provide substantial tax benefits and may be integral to your philanthropic and estate planning strategies. It enables you to support charitable causes that align with your values.
A generation-skipping trust is a sophisticated estate planning tool that allows you to pass assets directly to your grandchildren or future generations, bypassing your children. This trust can potentially minimize estate taxes and ensure that your legacy continues for multiple generations. Properly structured, it can offer significant benefits for high-net-worth individuals.
