The Difference Between a Will and a Trust
Many people have heard of a will and a trust, but do you really know what they are and what the difference is? Below is a brief description of the two.
A Will, also referred to as a Last Will and Testament is the most important part of an estate plan. With a Will you are able to choose who will inherit your assets, select who will have guardianship over your children and delegate a executor who will make sure that all of your wishes stated in your Will are carried out.
A Trust is a document which will allow you to set assets or money aside for family or charities and organizations. These assets will not go through the long drawn out process of probate, and will be available to your loved ones faster and without much hassle.
When is it Necessary to Change my Will?
- Change in marital status (married, divorced)
- New partner (unmarried)
- Significant change in amount of money or property you own
- Move to another state
- Your executor or a significant beneficiary in your will passes away
- New birth or adoption in your family
- You change your mind about the provisions in your will
