Yeah, so, a lot of people they are wondering, I’m setting up this asset protection trust or this estate planning trust, do I need the other one? And the answer is yes, you do need both. I personally like to explain it to people as the asset protection trust protects you while you’re alive. And then the estate planning trust, that was a weird emphasis, I did a weird emphasis there,
Did you put it on the wrong syllable?
I did. The estate planning trust helps you to pass your stuff on after you have died and helps that transition happen.
Yeah, so the asset protection trust is optimized for protecting your stuff while you’re alive and the estate planning trust is optimized for passing those assets on to the next generation, which typically, is focused on like, tax reduction, avoiding court, that sort of thing. So, it’s like, it’s hard to combine protecting assets and getting maximum tax benefits typically. So they .
They’re separate documents.
But they work together.
Yeah, kind of like the quarantining, how people are hanging out separate but together.
Yes. These trusts are in quarantine together. Well that’s a good way to put it Shreya. And that’s why it’s important if you’re worried about lawsuits during your lifetime, you wanna take action to protect your stuff. And then if you’re worrying about dying, ’cause–
We all die
We’re all gonna some day
You should have that estate plan as well, make ’em go smooth together.
Right! And so the vice versa is also true where if you have an estate planning trust, that does not mean that you have an asset protection trust that is going to protect your stuff while you’re alive.
Whole different topic to chat about.
