How do A will and a Trust Differ?
Which one will fulfill my needs?
The main difference between a will and a trust is a will goes into effect only after you've died, while a trust takes effect as soon as you created it.
A trust is a legal arrangement where a trustee holds legal title to property for the beneficiary. Trusts usually have two types of beneficiaries - the first is set to receive income from the trust during their lives, the other receives whatever is left after the first set of beneficiaries die.
While a will, on the other hand, covers any property that is in your name when you die. If any of your property is held in a joint tenancy or in a trust it won't be affected by a will.
A will will also become public record while a trust can remain private.
