1. Living Trust
A living trust, also known inter-vivos trust, is one made by a trustor (grantor) during his or her lifetime, with assets or property intended for the individual’s use during their lifetime. This type of trust allows the trustor to benefit from the trust while alive, but passes the assets and property on to a beneficiary (using a trustee) upon their death. With a living trust, you are generally able to avoid probate court, provided the trust is funded https://www.thestreet.com/personal-finance/what-is-a-trust-14644964
2. Testamentary Trust
A testamentary trust, often called a will trust, is an agreement made for the benefit of a beneficiary once the trustor has died, and details how the assets must be endowed after their death. This type of trust is often instituted by an executor, who will manage the trust for the trustor’s decedents after their will and testament has been created. And, a testamentary trust is irrevocable (cannot be changed or altered). https://www.thestreet.com/personal-finance/what-is-a-trust-14644964
3. Revocable Trust
A revocable trust, like a living trust, is created during the trustor’s lifetime. It is able to be changed, terminated, or otherwise altered during the trustor’s lifetime by the trustor themselves. It is often set up to transfer assets outside of probate. In this case, all three parts of the arrangement (the trustor, trustee and beneficiary) are often the same person who can manage their own assets, but will be given over to a successor trustee and other beneficiaries upon the original trustor’s death. https://www.thestreet.com/personal-finance/what-is-a-trust-14644964
4. Irrevocable Trust
On the contrary, an irrevocable trust is one that a trustor (grantor) cannot change or alter during his or her lifetime or that cannot be revoked after his or her death. Because this type of trust contains assets that cannot be moved back into the possession of the trustor, irrevocable trusts are often more tax efficient – with little to no estate taxes at all. For this reason, irrevocable trusts are often the most popular as they transfer assets completely out of the trustor’s name and into the next generation or beneficiary’s name. However, a living trust can be either revocable or irrevocable based on its specifications. https://www.thestreet.com/personal-finance/what-is-a-trust-14644964
5. Funded or Unfunded Trust
Funded or unfunded trusts are trust agreements that either have funds (assets) put into them or do not. These trusts can become funded at any point, either during the life or after the death of the trustor. https://www.thestreet.com/personal-finance/what-is-a-trust-14644964
6. Credit Shelter Trust
A credit shelter trust, also known as a bypass trust or a family trust, is a trust fund that allows the trustor to grant the recipients an amount of assets or funds up to the estate-tax exemption. Basically, this allows the trustor to give a spouse or family member the remainder of the estate tax free. These kinds of trusts are often very popular due to how the estate remains tax free forever, even if it grows in size. https://www.thestreet.com/personal-finance/what-is-a-trust-14644964
7. Insurance Trust
An insurance trust allows the trustor to combine their life insurance policy within the trust, keeping it free from taxation on the estate itself. This kind of trust is irrevocable and doesn’t allow the trustor to change or borrow against the life policy itself, but allows the life policy to help pay for post-death expenses on the estate. https://www.thestreet.com/personal-finance/what-is-a-trust-14644964
8. Qualified Terminable Interest Property Trust
A qualified terminable interest property trust is (first of all, a mouthful) a trust that allots assets to different beneficiaries at different times – often in the pattern of being directed to a spouse upon the trustor’s death, and subsequently to children after the spouse’s death. In this case, the children of the original trustor would receive whatever estate was left after the trustor’s spouse’s death. https://www.thestreet.com/personal-finance/what-is-a-trust-14644964
9. Charitable Trust
A charitable trust is a trust that has a charity or non-profit organization as the beneficiary. In normal cases, this type of trust would be built up during the trustor’s lifetime and, upon their passing, be doled out to a charity or organization of the trustor’s choosing, avoiding or reducing estate taxes or gift taxes. A charitable trust could also be part of a normal trust, wherein the trustor’s children or inheritors would receive part of the trust upon their passing, with the remainder of the estate going to the charity. https://www.thestreet.com/personal-finance/what-is-a-trust-14644964
Uses of a Trust
There are many different uses of a trust, whether it be to manage the trustor’s assets during life or after death, or provide a less-taxed, easier way to endow estates to the beneficiary(ies). Depending on the terms of the particular agreement, a trust can also provide a way for trustors or grantors to benefit during their lifetime as well.
Additionally, trusts are often used to manage property, assets, or estates being held for a minor or person incapable of being financially accountable until that person be deemed able to manage the assets themselves. https://www.thestreet.com/personal-finance/what-is-a-trust-14644964
