Revocable Trust Package Contents
Your Revocable Trust for a single person. The trust holds your estate for the benefit of your named beneficiaries and distributes your estate to your named beneficiaries with each beneficiary receiving a percentage share of your overall trust estate. The distributions to your named beneficiaries are distributed one-half upon each reaching age 25 and the other half upon reaching age 30.
Self Proving Certificate of Trust. Declares the Revocable Trust to be in existence. It includes a Trust Certificate that can be presented to banks, financial institutions, financial planners and investment advisors, and/or life insurance agents proving the existence of the trust without having to actually show them the trust itself.
Assignment Bill of Sale. Transfers all personal property (untitled) to the trust.
Transfer Document. A ‘catch all’ document setting forth your desire to transfer everything you own to your Revocable Trust.
Pour Over Will. Wills designed to catch assets that were inadvertently not placed in the trust and requests that the probate court transfer such assets to the Revocable Trust.
General Durable Power of Attorney. A general durable power of attorney for financial affairs allows you to appoint an agent (typically referred to as an “attorney-in-fact”) to make your financial decisions for you if you are incapable of making them for yourself. The power of attorney is designed to avoid the expense and time delay involved in petitioning the court for the appointment of a guardian. It also allows you to appoint a guardian of your choice in the event that a court appointment becomes necessary.
General Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care. A durable medical power of attorney (also referred to as a durable health care power of attorney or an advance directive) allows you to appoint an agent to make your medical decisions for you if your incapable of making them for yourself. You can give your agent instructions as to what type of medical care you want or do not want, including the authority to withhold or withdraw life-sustaining procedures, if you so desire. Without a properly drafted and signed durable medical power of attorney your spouse and/or children may not be able to control your medical care.
Letters of Instruction Requesting that Certain Assets be Re-titled in the Name of the Trust. It is imperative that all your assets, especially the probatable ones, have their ownership transferred to the Revocable Trust. Because of this importance, your Revocable Trust package includes over 14 different types of letters and instructional requests that you may sign and present to you bank, financial planner, insurance agent and the like such that your assets will be properly re-titled.

While our Illinois Estate Plan packages are drafted after our review of Illinois Estate Planning law, a review of these documents by your local attorney is necessary. The great thing is that this review is all you need to pay for. You present your already drafted Illinois Estate Plan to your local attorney for a final review and approval. You are even able to provide your local attorney with your Illinois Estate Plan on disk in MicroSoft Word format so that editing, if any, is fast and easy.
We strongly recommend that you have the documents that you create using our products reviewed by an attorney that is license to practice law in your state. Our forms cannot replace the services of an attorney and we are not authorized to provide legal advice regarding your specific situation or needs.
