I often advise clients that proper asset titling is one of the most important things with estate planning. I recently said, that having a Trust without the trust properly “funded” is like having an automobile without fuel. I think that message resonated as I received some positive feedback.
To further illustrate the importance of proper Trust Funding I will use a baseball analogy. To have a Trust that is not properly “funded” would be like Tim Wakefield throwing his famous knuckleball to a little league catcher. Unfortunately, its just not going to work out! The unfunded Trust, like the knuckleball not being caught will result in failure, losses and a very unhappy team or in your case a very unhappy family!
Like catching the tricky knuckleball, trust funding can be complex and tedious and should not be a Do It Yourself (DIY) job! It requires experience and a certain skill set.
We utilize our very successful Trust Funding Process to ensure the success of our clients estate plans. If you or anyone you know has an “unfunded” Trust or have questions about trust funding give us a call we are here to help!
