About Trusts and Trust Administration

A trust is a legal arrangement where one person, as trustee, holds legal title to property for the beneficiaries. You can be the trustee of your own living trust which allows you to maintain control over the property contained within your trust. A living trust (aka “inter vivos” trust) is a trust that’s created while you’re alive. Different types of living trusts can help you reduce estate taxes and avoid probate, among other benefits.

The goal of a living trust is to effectively manage property during any period of incapacity and to eventually transfer property upon death (or hold within a continuing trust) to (or for) beneficiaries who are identified in the trust.

Trust administration refers to the trustees’ management of trust property according to the trust document’s terms for the benefit of the beneficiaries.
