TRUSTS :What They Are, How They Work, and How They May Help You or Someone You Care About

Presented by: Kathryn C. Casey, JD.

A trust is a legal arrangement through which one person (or an institution, such as a bank or law firm), called a “trustee,” holds legal title to property for another person, called a “beneficiary.” There are different types of trusts (revocable, irrevocable, testamentary, and special needs), and each type of trust serves a different purpose.

This training, offered through the National Resource Center on LGBT Aging, and sponsored by Dutton & Casey, the Senior and Community Resource Center at St. Alexius Medical Center, Center on Halsted, and Elderwerks, will provide you with information and resources to best serve LGBT older adults and address the unique challenges faced by this community.
