Advantages of Establishing a Trust
There are many different types of trusts to choose from and, in order to meet your needs, you must be careful in your selection. An irrevocable trust can't be changed without the permission of the beneficiary. A revocable living trust can be created while you are alive and changed as you wish. Other trusts available to you include generation-skipping trusts to designate assets for tax exemption purposes, a life insurance trust that allows your beneficiaries to receive life insurance benefits, or a charitable trust that allows for major tax breaks.
A few advantages of these trusts and others include:
- Reducing gift and estate taxes
- Establishing conditions on how assets are handled
- Protecting your assets from creditors and lawsuits
- Distributing assets to intended heirs efficiently
