Personal trust services offered by Ameriprise Bank, FSB

Trusts are often the outcome of a well-thought-out estate plan. They allow you to direct how your assets are managed during your life and after your death - and aren't just for the wealthy. 

Trusts can be used in a variety of ways, including: 

  • Controlling asset distributions (especially for minor children) over time
  • Protecting heirs from family disputes
  • Providing for a disabled or special needs family member
  • Charitable donations 
  • Managing assets in the event you become incapacitated

Ameriprise trust solutions

Revocable 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 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:

  • Special needs/supplemental trusts can provide for heirs with physical or developmental disabilities
  • Protect the interests of unmarried life partners
  • 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
