A TRUST agreement is a document that spells out the rules that you want followed for property held in TRUST for your beneficiaries. Common objectives for TRUSTS are to reduce the estate tax liability, to protect property in your estate, and to avoid probate.
Advantages of writing life policies in TRUST
- Faster payout as it avoids the legal hassles associated with probate
