 Did you know...

A revocable living trust does not eliminate the need for a guardian if you become incompetent? The trustee (manager of the trust) is limited to handling trust assets. Many decisions must be made that do not involve trust assets. A durable power of attorney and health care power of attorney should also be considered.
