When to Create a Trust

Like most estate planning documents, it is smart to set trusts up as reasonably early in life as possible. Once a person loses their mental capacity, whether from an unfortunate accident or natural causes such as dementia, they can no longer create legal documents. Therefore, it is imperative that you create your estate plan much earlier in time, long before reaching a state where you no longer have your mental capacity. This can be hard to plan for, which is why it is recommended that you engage in estate planning sooner rather than later. Major life events like the following are good times to consider establishing a trust.

  • Purchased property
  • Birth or adoption of a child
  • Inherited assets

Benefits of Establishing a Trust
