Understanding What A Trust Can Do
Trusts are created to help those with real property and other assets create a means for managing and sustaining their assets for the benefit of the trust’s named beneficiaries. There are certain tax benefits available to those who create trusts. Many people create trusts to safeguard their named beneficiaries from wasting assets within the trust.

What Type Of Trust Will Benefit My Family Most?
The type of trust you create will depend primarily on your specific goals and how you wish to manage your assets. There many different types of trusts, each with specific benefits, for example:
- Special needs
Revocable trusts are subject to amendments or revocation as necessary by the grantor throughout the grantor’s lifetime. The grantor is the person who creates the trust, also known as the “trustor” or “settlor” of the trust. An irrevocable trust, on the other hand, is difficult to amend but is possible through permission from the named beneficiaries. Special needs trusts will be instrumental in assisting a disabled family member who may be at risk of losing essential public benefits but may need extra care. You may benefit your favorite charitable organization by creating a charitable trust.
