Creating your Revocable Trust is the first step to protecting you and your family; however, in order to have the benefits the Revocable Trust offers, the trust creator (Trustor, Grantor, Settler) has the homework of titling their assets in the name of the newly created trust. This episode will walk you through that process and once finished, show you how easy the trust is to maintain going forward.
I chose this topic so that listeners can use this episode as a guide when funding their trust, and to help those considering a revocable trust get comfortable with the idea. Once done, your everyday financial life does not change, and you have peace of mind that your wishes will be carried out as intended.
I have loads of resources on my website, including on-demand webinars on various topics geared to help you and your loved ones, both during your life and after death.
