Is it Better to Have a Will or Trust?

Wills are public vs trusts which are private and more difficult to contest. A living trust is also a better way to manage your children’s inheritance.

You can have both a will and a living trust. A trust doesn’t replace a will; they are two separate documents. You can manage most of your assets through a trust. But you need a will to designate who gets what; the will specifies the distribution of items in your estate. A family heirloom or a beloved book can go to anyone you name in your will.

A will covers everything you own at the time of your death. It will be managed by the court system. You can specifically transfer property in a trust. It is not regulated by the court. A trust goes into effect before you die. One of the advantages of a trust is if you become incapacitated, your trustees (heirs) can handle your estate. Read more about wills vs trusts.
