The concept of the revocable trust (sometimes referred to as a “revocable living trust,” “living trust,” or “grantor trust”) is similar to a Will in that it directs the distribution of assets at the time of your death, but it does so without the involvement of probate court. In addition a revocable trust may provide for your care and the management of your assets during your lifetime in the event of disability or incapacity. When you create the trust and transfer assets into the trust you are known as the Trustor (or sometimes “Grantor” or “Settlor”). You name a trustee, frequently yourself, and the ‘Trustee’ is the person who holds and manages the trust assets in accordance with the terms and provisions set forth in the Trust instrument. The ‘Beneficiary’ is a person(s) for whose benefit the trust was created. It is created and operational while you are alive and it can be revoked or changed at any time by the person(s) who created the trust.
