What Our Clients Say About Us

What is a Beneficiary?

Roles Associated With Trusts

Our expert guidance helps you understand your privileges, responsibilities and obligations as a trust beneficiary.

Beneficiaries of this type of trust generally cannot be substituted or their access changed without court intervention.
This class of beneficiary is the first in line to receive benefits from the trust, ahead of Remainder or Contingent Beneficiaries.
This is an individual or organization who administers property or assets for the benefit of a third party, by holding onto the property but without taking direct ownership of it. Trustees have the fiduciary responsibility to operate in the best interests of the grantor and the beneficiaries, and must faithfully execute the mandates outlined in the trust document.
The rights of persons or entities with this beneficiary designation are subordinate to Primary or Income Beneficiaries. Depending on the instructions in the trust document, Trustees generally emphasize preservation and growth of principal assets in the trust when considering beneficiaries of this type.
Sometimes called the settler or trustor, a grantor refers to the individual who creates the trust and has the legal authority to transfer property into the Trust.
A person other than the grantor, beneficiary, or trustee who holds power over some aspect of a trust.

We navigate complex legal, regulatory and tax matters, and set realistic expectations to minimize family friction.
