Do you need a trust for your estate plan?

Wills and/or trusts make up the backbone of any estate plan. Some people are under the impression that a trust is required to achieve their estate planning goals. It is certainly true that many families and individuals can realize substantial benefits through the creation of a trust. For instance, assets in a trust are not subject to the probate process. As a result, your beneficiaries can receive assets without waiting for the probate process. With this said, a trust is not necessarily the right estate planning tool for everyone. 

How can you know if you have the right executor or trustee?

Choosing the right trustee or executor makes a major difference in your estate plan. If you already have a will or trust, now is a good time to review who you appointed to be your executor or trustee, so you can be sure you made the right decision.
