Why do Trusts protect you better than Wills?
Since 1991, when AARP advised members to use trusts, millions have switched. Here’s why:
Trusts protect you from guardianship proceedings if you become disabled. Wills don’t.
Trusts protect you from probate court proceedings on death. Wills have to be probated, resulting in added delays and expense.
Trusts protect your home and life savings from long-term care nursing home costs. Wills don’t.
Trusts protect the inheritances you leave from children’s divorces, lawsuits and creditors, and keep your assets in the bloodline for your grandchildren. Wills don’t.
