    • Record keeping
    • Collect income
    • Distribute income
    • Timely management of maturing securities
  • 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.

  • Bill Pay Plus

    For a low monthly fee, SSB Trust Department will pay your bills in a timely manner. Clients include individuals who are not able to manage their own bills, prefer not to have the burden of doing so, or take extended trips/vacations and want to make sure bills are taken care of while they are gone. You can count on Bill-Pay Plus...and us!

  • Living Trusts

    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.
  • 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. Corporate executors are not as susceptible to conflicts of interest with the beneficiaries and are sensitive to, but not subject to emotional considerations.

  • Farm Management

    In our 120 years of working with area farmers, we have developed a great depth of knowledge about all facets of the agricultural industry. Our farm management program leverages a working knowledge, life experiences and continual information streams that strengthen our farm management program.

  • Land Trust

    Real property is held in trust for the benefit of the named beneficiaries.

  • Escrow Agent

    Escrow is a legal arrangement in which an asset is delivered to a third party (called an escrow agent) to be held in trust pending a contingency or the fulfillment of a condition or conditions in a contract such as payment of a purchase price. Like Kind Exchange (1031)
