What Does It Mean To Fund A Trust

Funding a trust is a very important part of the trust process. The trust itself is the vehicle that’s used to protect your assets. Once a trust has been created, we must title all of your property into the name of the trust. For instance, if you own real estate, your attorney will be preparing a deed that deeds the property from your name personally into the name of your trust. The step of funding your trust is an area that’s very important because the trust doesn’t accomplish what the trust is designed to do if your assets are not held in the name of a trust.
