Do You Need a Trust?

There are numerous benefits provided through trusts.

A trust is a legal entity created to accomplish any number of specific goals. A trust can avoid probate and pass your assets quickly and privately to your heirs. A trust can provide management of your assets if you’re incapacitated. Parents may set up a trust to provide for the future needs of their children or grandchildren. A couple may set up a trust to protect their assets from estate tax. Charitable individuals may set up a trust that pays lifetime income, and then passes assets to a charity after their death.

Kennebec Savings Bank Investment & Trust Services can help you assess your situation, and help determine if a trust would help you achieve your goals. We’ll manage your trust in accordance with your wishes, the trust document, and with the best interest of your beneficiaries in mind.

Estate Planning

Each transfer of property you make to another person can be subject to estate or gift tax. This is true whether the transfer occurs during your lifetime or upon your death.

There are a few exceptions to this rule, but with proper planning, we can protect your estate from paying more in state and federal taxes than it should.
  • Professional estate planning advice
  • Reducing exposure to estate and inheritance taxes
  • Planning for tax advantaged distributions during life and after death
