What Every Trustee Should Know

When I (Shea) was younger, my mom would leave a “to-do” chore list for us kids to complete after school and before she came home from work. As the eldest, I would “delegate” the chores in order to make the list fairer than my mother had. It took a few years for everyone to catch on. My brother was the first one to figure it out once his reading skills advanced, HA!
If only understanding your responsibilities as trustees were that easy after our loved ones pass. Well, actually, it can be! You can even delegate some tasks. Ed Slott, IRA expert, created a “to-do” list to help you understand what to do next. According to Forbes, there will be $30 trillion in assets transferred from Baby Boomers to their heirs. Will you know what to do when it’s your turn to inherit?
