Testamentary Trusts

A testamentary trust is established by a will and becomes effective after the death of the testator. Depending on its terms, a testamentary trust may provide tax advantages and professional money management for the beneficiaries.

Types of testamentary trusts include:

  • Bequests to minors (attainment of legal majority at 18). Avoids legal guardianship.
  • Marital Trust and Residuary Trust – Save taxes with marital deduction. It allows half an estate to pass to the surviving spouse without federal tax.


A court may appoint a trust institution to act as a guardian for a minor or some other person not competent to manage his own affairs.
