Creating a Living Trust in Alaska

A trust is an arrangement where a person (trustee) holds a legal title to a property for another individual (beneficiary). You can be the trustee of your own living trust – which is a trust you make while you are alive – and maintain complete control over any property held in the trust.

The following are the steps to take to make a living trust in Alaska:

  • Determine to create an individual or shared trust

  • Choose what assets to include in the trust (e.g. houses/real estate, stocks and bonds, business interests, copyrights and patents, valuables, etc.)

  • Name a successor trustee (i.e. the person who will take over the trust)

  • Name the beneficiaries (i.e. individuals who will receive the trust assets)

  • Make and notarize the trust document

  • Change the title of any property in the trust document to reflect ownership as a trustee

There are two types of living trusts: revocable and irrevocable trusts. Revocable trusts enable the trustee to make changes or revoke specific conditions, while irrevocable trusts are permanent and provide a means to reduce estate taxes by removing trust assets from your estate.

Regarding estate planning, living trusts can help you avoid the probate process. You can establish the exact dates you want to transfer certain assets to your beneficiaries.
