There are so many good options when it comes to estate planning, but two of the most popular are trusts and wills. It is common for people to ask us if one is better than the other. While either option can do well to protect your needs, a trust can provide more ease for you and your beneficiaries in the long run. If you only have a will, then you have a document that goes into effect upon your death. With this option, you leave a detailed plan of how you want your estate to be distributed. Every will must.
