Have You Done Your Homework?
Not only is your trust binder full of important legal documents, it also contains documents to guide your family in implementing your plan. This workshop offers a guided session to completing your Memorandum for Distribution of Personal Property, Remembrance and Services Memorandum, Child Care Exhibit, Key Information section, and other documents that you may customize. Please bring your trust binder(s) and we will identify your “homework” and provide direction on completing it.

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.
