Let's Talk

What is the difference between a Will and a Trust?

The most significant difference between the two documents is that a will only goes into effect after the settlor (person who wrote the will) dies.

When does a Will vs. a Trust go into effect?

A will goes into effect after a person’s death. The person creating a trust determines when it should go into effect. The trust might begin the distribution of the person’s property before, at the time of, or after their death.

What does a Will vs. a Trust cover?

A will covers all of the person’s property at the time of their death regardless of its location. A trust only covers property that is transferred to the trust. An attorney can help you create a trust to plan for a specific situation or occasion or to help you save money on taxes.


Here's everything you need to know.

The trust administration process consists of many steps designed to safeguard the assets of the trust. The first thing the trustee should do is evaluate the assets and determine the settlor’s wishes. They will require several copies of the settlor’s certified death certificate to complete these steps. Sometimes it takes as long as six weeks to receive these necessary documents.

What's next?

A trustee must take the necessary steps to effectively administer the trust.
