A trust is a legal relationship by which you provide for the transfer of property to another to hold and manage the property for the beneficiaries identified in the trust. Trusts are often recommended as part of a comprehensive estate plan for any number of reasons; avoiding the public disclosure of assets and financial data, uninterrupted management of assets before or after an individual’s death, illnesses or disability, reduction of income and/or estate tax and the elimination or reduction of the expense and delays associated with probate. The most common form of trust is the revocable (inter vivos or living) trust, however many circumstances dictate the use of irrevocable trusts, or special needs trusts.
