What Is An Irrevocable Grantor Trust?

Irrevocable Grantor Trust

Our lawyers at the Law Office of Conrad Willkomm, P.A, are excited to announce that we will now be incorporating Irrevocable Grantor Trust into our estate planning services. With Irrevocable Grantor Trust, you can be a sole or co-trustee of the estate. You can also retain income from assets in the trust for life or a specific period of time. Additionally, you can provide the discretionary distribution of principal to your children.

If you meet the following criteria, you should consider an Irrevocable Grantor Trust:

  • You have excess resources and do not meet Medicaid qualifying conditions.
  • You want to protect your assets but do not need direct access to them.
  • You don’t want to give up control of your assets and want to keep benefiting from the income they generate.
  • You are married and your joint income is below the MMMNA.
  • You want to protect your business from creditors but also want to keep full control of and receive all income from your business.

Benefits of an Irrevocable Grantor Trust include:

  • Asset protection from creditors and long-term care costs.
  • Your income will be available and you will have full control over your assets.
  • All of your affairs will be kept private.
  • Your assets can be distributed to your beneficiaries in an asset protection trust.
  • You can use your assets to extent trust permits.
