The terms Will and Trust are sometimes used interchangeably. However, this is not correct. There are some differences between the two.
A Will is a legal document outlining an individual’s final wishes. This can include how they want their personal affairs to be handled, including burial arrangements, etc., along with how they want their property to be distributed.
A Trust, on the other hand, is a financial instrument that allows the trustor to transfer their assets under the management of a third party, also known as the trustee. Depending on the type of trust, it may offer significant protection from creditors and other suits against the estate.
