Living trusts are often used when individuals would like to make sure their children are taken care of after their passing. A living trust can offer instructions that establish provisions of when children may be entitled to the assets left to them in the trust. For example, parent’s may leave a special needs child specific instructions on how to use their inheritance so that their guardian may be able to carry out their wishes without question. The same may go for minor or adult children, as well. LIving trusts can offer individuals a way to be specific in how inheritance may be handled.
In some cases, living trusts may be used to keep money away from certain individuals. For example, grandparents may leave an inheritance for their grandchildren's college fund in a living trust. With specific instructions, the money left may only be used for college tuition. The grandchildren or their parents shouldn't be able to use the money for anything else.
