Most fiduciary accounts are established by a triggering event, such as death or incompetence – but a trust account is established by choice. Although most staff members understand the procedures required to open a trust account, many do not understand why the trust was established or how the account is covered by FDIC insurance. It’s confusing because a personal account and a trust account can appear very similar. When funds are transferred from a personal account to a trust account, there may be the same signers and tax identification number. Therefore, the difference between the two is not always obvious, until you consider management of the funds after the death of the grantor(s) – and that is the primary purpose for most trusts. Death has no effect on the continuation of a trust. In fact, certain trusts are only created at death. Trusts are invaluable in the estate planning process and continue to gain popularity.
It is critical to be comfortable and confident when handling the trust relationship and understand trust FDIC options, too. This program is designed to provide a detailed understanding of both trust entities and their unique FDIC insurance coverage.
