The Win-Win of the Charitable Remainder Trust

I don’t want this to sound like a gimmick or some slick way to raise money from gullible elderly church members. That is not what a Charitable Remainder Trust is. The Charitable Remainder Trust can be an wonderful part of a person’s retirement/estate plan. What makes it so wonderful? Here’s a list:

  1. Guaranteed Income for Life: This will supplement social security and pension income. Rule of thumb is that you will receive 5% back on any assets you entrust…for life…and it will likely grow.
  2. Protection of Assets: No one wants to see the financial assets that they accumulate during their lifetime dwindle away paying for nursing home care. These Trusts are irrevocable which protects them legally.
  3. Lowering your Taxes: I don’t understand all this part, but it’s pretty clear that you will be lowering your tax bill considerably.
  4. Supporting the Charities you Love: Many people fail to do any estate planning. After you pass, the assets of the Trust will go to benefit the charities of your choice.
