Funding a Trust
The process of transferring your assets into your trust is known as funding your trust. This involves changing the titles of your assets from your name to the name of your trust. You may wish to add all assets to your trust or leave some out.
Assets to consider leaving out of your trust include:
- Out-of-state property
- Contaminated property
- Life insurance
- IRA and other tax-deferred plans
- Incentive stock options
What goes in your trust is totally up to you. Depending on your circumstances, there may be certain assets that are best left out of the trust. A qualified attorney can help you make decisions regarding questionable assets.
