Making estate planning easier for the family

Some California residents may know that one facet of estate planning involves explaining to family members what the estate plan entails and what to do if that individual should die. Because an estate plan may be complex, there might be an easier way to take care of those details without unduly stressing family members.

Duties of a trust administrator

Residents of California may wonder what is involved in trust administration. A trust has two parts, income and principal, and the administrator, also known as the fiduciary, is in charge of managing both of those parts. The principal consists of all the assets that are in the trust, while the income is paid out to beneficiaries. The beneficiary may also eventually inherit the principal or receive income until death. At that time, the principal may pass to another beneficiary.

Trusts as important estate planning tools

While many California residents think that a will is the only document they will need to pass on their assets to beneficiaries when they die, there are other estate planning documents that can also be useful in a variety of circumstances. As one example, the importance of establishing an advance health care directive to ensure that the maker's wishes concerning the types of medical treatment that will be allowed in the event of incapacity is well established. Another type of document that can be applied to a variety of situations is a trust.
