An irrevocable living trust goes into effect during the grantor’s life and cannot be revoked. Initially, many people wonder why they should create a trust they cannot modify. Fortunately, there are many benefits to an irrevocable trust.
As soon as assets are transferred into an irrevocable trust for the benefit of another person, they are no longer part of your estate, meaning they are exempt from estate taxes. Furthermore, the assets in an irrevocable trust for the benefit of another individual may be protected from that person’s creditors and divorcing spouses.
