What laws or other factors are considered when distributing assets within the Trust? The Trust document indicates who the beneficiaries are, what portion of the Trust or amount they are to receive from the Trust when they’re supposed to receive the Trust, and it’s up to the Trustee to administer the Trust. As far as that’s concerned, many times the Trustee is to hold the money, must invest it or whatever to, so it just doesn’t sit there and doesn’t accumulate any income, and then he is obligated to distribute the money pursuant to the provisions of the Trust. The Florida statutes outline the duties of the Trustee and what his fiduciary or responsibilities are and when he should do that. So, the Trust instrument determines the factors involved as far as distribution of Trust assets. If you have any questions, give me a call at (727) 847-2288.
