Does revocable trusts need a trust account or bank account? The answer to the question is yes. If you have an account that you want controlled by your trustees, you need to by your trust, you need to name, to set up the account and your name as trustee of your particular trust. The reason for that is, is if it’s just in your individual name, then the provisions, the trust do not apply. So sometimes you see people that have set up a wonderful trust and it says everything. And the idea is to avoid probate, but they don’t turn around and retitled their assets and their name is trustee under their trust. So whenever they pass away, you have to go through a probate process to get an order for the assets to go to the trust and then have the trust, distribute the assets, which defeated the whole purpose of setting up the trust to avoid probate. So if you want assets to be controlled, by your trust, you need to title them in the name of your name as trustee under your revocable trust and name your as trustee and name your trust in the, how you title the asset for it to be controlled by the, the provisions of your trust.
