Trust Administration


"Put not your trust in money, but put your money in trust."

-Oliver Wendell Holmes

If a person dies and they have a Trust, then the named successor Trustee, must “administer” the Trust.   Their job is to read the Trust and follow all of its instructions; they must also follow all of the state and federal laws that impact the decedent’s estate.  This is called a Trust Administration or a Trust Settlement

If you’ve been named as an executor of a will or a trustee of someone’s trust, then you should know that it’s an honor that you have been named, because that means your loved one thought highly of you and your character.

But being an executor or trustee is an important job that requires a high level of responsibility and care for handling all of the legal and financial details in just the right way.

The process for administering a Trust can be complicated.  There are many legal and financial details that must be handled, as well as state and federal laws that must be considered. And they do matter, both now and for future generations.
