Why do you need a will and a trust? And what are the differences between the two?
A Will just declares what you are leaving behind for your beneficiaries, but a trust is a legal mechanism that lets you put conditions on how your assets are distributed after you die and it often lets you minimize gift and estate taxes.
An Example: You have declared in your Will that your son and daughter will inherit a certain amount of money. You can place their money in a trust and stipulate at what age they will receive it.
