Trust Under Agreement/Living Trust
A revocable, or living trust, is a trust that permits you to be in charge because you can:
- Revoke the trust at any time
- Amend/revise the terms of the trust
- Change beneficiaries
- Avoid probate. When the trust creator dies, the directions contained in the trust can be carried out without the delay of probate, while maintaining your privacy.
Special Needs Trust
If you have a disabled child or family member, meeting their needs is a top priority. A Special Needs or Supplemental Needs Trust offer a financial solution to ensure your loved one is taken care of financially. Estate planning for families with a disabled loved one can be complicated. Our team will help ensure your loved one continues to live comfortably without jeopardizing certain government benefits.
Trust Under Will/Testamentary Trusts
A trust is specified in the terms of your will. Upon your death, your assets pass into a trust, which is then managed by a trustee.

Executor/Administrator of Estate
At times of death, families find the settling of an estate a time-consuming conflict-starting challenge. To avoid this, name State Street Bank as the executor of your estate. Through our estate settlement, we work with your legal advisor to administer your estate. Corporate executors are not as susceptible to conflicts of interest with the beneficiaries and are sensitive to, but not subject to emotional considerations.
