Ameriprise trust solutions
Revocable living trusts
Revocable living trusts provide the most flexible options:
- Alter, amend, or revoke the trust terms whenever you choose
- Provide privacy and help simplify your estate settlement – particularly if you own property in more than one state
- Helpful if you are injured or incapacitated and can't manage your own financial affairs
Irrevocable trusts cannot be changed once established, but offer these benefits:
- Provide estate tax savings or liability protection for family members
- Reduce the size of your estate by gifting assets to your family via the trust
- Fundable during your life as well as after your death
Created as part of your will, testamentary trusts only take effect after your passing.
- May help reduce estate taxes
- Enable you to exercise control over how your assets will be used after your death
Charitable trusts are irrevocable testamentary trusts designed to ultimately benefit a chosen charity.
- Defer capital gains taxes on appreciated assets
- Reduce your estate tax liability and provide an income stream for you or another individual
Specialty trusts are used in unique circumstances:
- To provide for heirs with physical or developmental disabilities
- To protect the interests of unmarried life partners
- Also, if you use a professional trustee, a specialty trust can help ensure the tax deferral of your IRA assets for your heirs after your death
