CHOOSING A TRUSTEE
One of the most important decisions you will make when establishing your trust is the selection of your trustee. Choosing the right trustee can help you avoid legal issues and ensure your estate-planning goals are achieved, so it’s essential to consider your options carefully.
With a revocable living trust, you as grantor typically also functions as trustee. But who will take on this responsibility should you become disabled or die?
Some grantors choose a family member or trusted friend. Another option to consider is a corporate fiduciary as a trustee. Choosing a Corporate Trustee can help ensure that current and future generations benefit from the expertise, prudence, and continuity that a well-established fiduciary can provide.
