Learn about the desires and purposes of this type of trust planning.
Estate planning has gone beyond the basic will and powers of attorney. The Spousal Lifetime Access Trust may be one tool to assist your clients and has several objectives. Maintaining effective control over assets during your clients' lifetime in a manner that will not require the consent of anyone other than themselves or the survivor of them; providing a means of protecting family wealth while allowing your clients access to income and principal if needed; providing a vehicle to utilize estate freeze and discounting techniques; and if possible, permitting both spouses to benefit from all trust assets. There are numerous means to address these desires, but only a few meet all objectives. This video reviews the different ideas to achieve these goals.
