Frequently Asked Questions

What language is required to name Caldwell Trust Company as a Trustee?

Proper name to use: Caldwell Trust Company

When Caldwell Trust is named as a Trustee or Co-trustee in a trust, we require that someone have the ability to replace the Corporate Trustee.  This can be a beneficiary, a majority of the beneficiaries, or a Trust Protector. 

Can I meet with a representative before naming Caldwell Trust Company?

It is necessary to meet with us prior to naming us in a trustee capacity in a document.  This is an important decision.  For your family, it is important to gain an understanding of how we will carry out your wishes.  For Caldwell, it is important for us to assess our ability to carry out the terms of your document.  This is a relationship and knowing who will be carrying out your wishes for your loved one and how it will be done should never be decided without a face to face meeting. 

 

Will Caldwell Trust Company review my documents?

It is important for us to review your documents prior to signing them.  We have tremendous experience implementing estate plans and can be helpful in avoiding planning errors.  We also want to be certain than we can carry out your wishes as intended. 

 

Can they work with a trustee or beneficiary who is out of state?

Caldwell has clients and beneficiaries all over the world.

 

Will they work with my family members as co-trustee?

Caldwell will work with family members appointed as Co-Trustee.  Typically, a person considers a co-trustee for accountability purposes.  A co-Trustee participates in all decisions, both investment and administration.  This can sometimes cause unnecessary delays in carrying out the duties of the trustee.  An alternative, which accomplishes the same accountability, is to allow the beneficiary, another family member, or a majority of beneficiaries, to replace the Corporate trustee rather than name a Co-Trustee.
