Inheritance & Estate Planning
You've worked hard to build a legacy for your loved ones. Let 4Front Credit Union and CUSO Financial Services (CFS) help ensure a seamless transfer of wealth to your designees.
Wills and Trusts | There IS a difference
A will is a document that communicates to legal authorities what should happen to your possessions in the event of your death. If you have minor children, it designates their legal guardian. After your death, a will is verified as “valid” in probate court and probate proceedings begin. Wills serve as the foundation of an effective estate plan.
Trusts are legal arrangements designating one or more people or a legal entity (referred to as a "trustee") to manage the assets for someone else’s benefit (the beneficiaries). There are many classifications and types of trusts. A CFS advisor can help you with many aspects of estate planning guidance.
Estate Planning | What happens to your estate when you pass away
Upon an individual's death, they may have assets in their name only. Those assets must first proceed through a legal process before they can be distributed to designated beneficiaries. Rather than burden a family member or friend, many individuals choose to appoint a trust company as executor or personal representative to handle this process. Contact our financial advisor for more information.
