When John recently lost his wife Betty to cancer, their children were surprised to find out that neither John nor Betty had life insurance. As a result, the children ended up paying the cost of the funeral, and John, currently on a fixed income, is left contemplating whether he can afford to stay in the home they had lived in for over 25 years.
You’ve made the decision to establish a trust. Whatever the reason you may have in establishing your trust, one thing you will have to do is name a trustee. You will want to choose a trustee that understands your goals and has the capability to follow your instructions.
Your trustee could be yourself, a spouse, a child, a family member or a friend. Your trustee will be taking on potentially wide ranging and complex duties and may or may not understand all of the decisions or the time commitment that may be involved in settling your estate. For these and other reasons it may be prudent to name a corporate trustee.
Although an individual may have many of the necessary qualifications to serve as your trustee, few will have all of the necessary credentials. Everything you need in a corporate trustee is here at First National Bank & Trust.
