Estate Planning Focus – Summer 2020

FROM THE CHAIR - Jennifer Remondino

Protecting Your Child's Inheritance While Giving Control

Did you know that you can protect your children's inheritance from failed marriages and other creditors while also allowing them to have control of the assets? A properly structured and administered lifelong trust that has the child as the sole trustee and limits distributions to health, education, support and maintenance offers creditor protection and autonomy for the beneficiary.
