Funding Your Trust
Funding is a critical function of maintaining your trust. Even though your current assets are coordinated with your trust, it is your responsibility to make sure that all assets acquired in the future are also coordinated with your trust. This workshop will help you understand how to properly maintain your trust funding. It also provides essential information to correctly fund your trust, so be sure to sign up if you have not yet taken the class.
Income Taxes for Trusts
Income taxes are often a secondary discussion topic during the course of planning an estate. However, basic knowledge of trust and estate income tax rules is essential to avoiding common mistakes that can cost thousands of dollars. This workshop will provide a practical overview of the issues that arise in connection with the income taxation of trusts and estates.
Trustee Training: Trust Process
This program will provide attendees with an understanding of estate planning concepts, the value of trusts in comprehensive planning, and an introduction to the trust administration process. Attendance is a must for every Trustee and successor Trustee. A Trustee Handbook will be included. This program is a precursor for the Trustee Training (The Administration Process) program.
Using Trusts to Protect Your Assets from Long-Term Care Costs
The skyrocketing costs of long-term care can decimate the net worth you’ve built over a lifetime. Using an Irrevocable Trust may protect your assets from the costs of long-term care for those who cannot qualify for other planning alternatives. This program will review the pros and cons of Irrevocable Trusts in long-term care planning.
Trustee Training: Administration Process
The Trust Administration workshop provides Trustees with a detailed description of the decisions to be made and the tasks to be completed following the death of a Trustmaker. These include valuing assets, administering retirement plans and annuities, dividing and distributing trust assets, and preparing estate and fiduciary income tax returns. It is important to know how to handle these responsibilities before the need exists. Prior attendance at the Trustee Training (The Trust Process) program is highly encouraged.
Planning for Incapacity
While your legal documents are up to date and you have discussed who will act in your place to make financial and health care decisions, there is more to the story. This program will dig into the finer points of what actually happens when the issue of incapacity confronts you and your family members. Unlike death, disability/incapacity can become a difficult event to define.When are you unable to make decisions and what is the process that must be followed to ensure a smooth transition? We will cover how to discuss your wishes with your loved ones, ways to plan ahead for your potential incapacity, what the institutions will need to know, and the likely outcome of the process.
