Trusts In Washington State
You can add a revocable or irrevocable trust to your estate plan. If you choose a revocable trust, you can manage, modify, and revoke it if you decide to do so.
With an irrevocable trust, you will choose a third-party trustee to manage it. You cannot revoke or directly access the trust, but you can benefit from it. Irrevocable trusts are popular with people who want to remove assets from their estates to qualify for Medicaid. Also, the property inside of the trust is shielded from creditors, providing another benefit.
Revocable and irrevocable trusts do not have to pass through probate. That means that the proceedings won’t be made public. Thus, this is also a good option if you want to maintain your family’s privacy.
