Wills and trusts are two 
of the most commonly 
used estate planning 
documents, and they 
form the foundation of 
most estate plans. Whileboth documents are legalvehicles designed to 
distribute your assets toyour loved ones upon yourdeath, the way in which they work is quite different. 
From when they take effect to the property theycover to how they are administered, wills and trustshave some key differences you need to consider when 
creating your estate plan. That said, when comparingthe two documents, you won’t necessarily be choosingbetween one or the other—most plans include both.
But you should still be aware of some of the key 
differences between each. 
When They Take EffectA will only goes into effect when you die, while atrust takes effect as soon as it’s signed and your assets 
are transferred into the name of the trust, known as“funding” the trust. To this end, a will directs whowill receive your assets upon your death, while a trustspecifies how your assets will be distributed beforeyour death, at your death, or at a specified time afterdeath. 
Furthermore, because a will only goes into effectwhen you die, it offers no protection if you become 
incapacitated and are no longer able to make decisionsabout your financial, legal, and healthcare needs. Ifyou do become incapacitated, your family will have topetition the court to appoint a conservator or guardianto handle your affairs, which can be costly, time-
consuming, and stressful. 
With a trust, however, you can include provisionsthat appoint someone of your choosing—not thecourt’s—to handle your assets if you’re unable to doso. When combined with a well-drafted medical powerof attorney and living will, a trust can keep your familyout of court and out of conflict in the event of yourincapacity, while ensuring your wishes regarding yourmedical treatment and end-of-life care are carried out 
exactly as you intended. 
The Assets They CoverA will covers any asset solely owned in your name. Awill does not cover property co-owned by you withothers listed as joint tenants, nor does a will cover 
assets that pass directly to your loved ones via a 
beneficiary designation, such as life insurance, IRAs,
401(k)s, and payable-on-death bank accounts. 
Trusts, on the other hand, cover any asset that has 
been transferred, or “funded,” to the trust or where thetrust is the named beneficiary of an account or policy.
That said, if an asset hasn’t been properly funded to thetrust, it won’t be covered, so it’s critical to work withyour attorney to ensure all your assets are fully funded. 
Most lawyers will set up a trust for you, but few willensure your assets are properly inventoried or funded,
and this is one of the most important aspect of estateplanning. And it’s not just about making sure yourassets are properly inventoried and titled when youinitially set up your trust, your lawyer should helpensure that any new assets you acquire over the courseof your life are inventoried and properly funded toyour trust on an ongoing basis to ensure your planworks when your family needs it. 
How They Are AdministeredFor assets in a will to be transferred to a beneficiary,
the will must pass through the court process known asprobate. During probate, the court oversees the will’sadministration, ensuring your assets are distributedaccording to your wishes, with automatic supervisionto handle any disputes. 
However, probate proceedings can drag out for years,
and your family will likely have to hire an attorney torepresent them, which can result in costly legal feesthat can drain your estate. During probate, there’s alsothe chance that one of your family members mightcontest your will, especially if you have disinheritedthem or plan to leave significantly more money to onerelative than the others. 
Bottom line: If your estate plan consists of a will alone,
you are guaranteeing your family will have to go tocourt if you become incapacitated or when you die. 
Furthermore, since probate is a public proceeding,
your will becomes part of the public record upon yourdeath. This means everyone will be able to learn thecontents of your estate, who your beneficiaries are, andwhat they inherit, setting them up as potential targetsfor scam artists and fraudsters. 
Unlike wills, trusts don’t require your family to gothrough probate, which can save time, money, and thepotential for conflict. Plus, when you have a trust setup, the distribution of your assets happens in private—
not the courtroom—so the contents and terms of yourtrust will remain completely private. 
How Much They CostWills and trusts do differ in cost—not only whenthey’re created, but also when they’re used. The averagewill-based estate plan can run between $500 to $2,000,
depending on the options selected. An average trust-
based plan can be two to four times mor than that,
again depending on the options chosen. So at least onthe front end, wills are less expensive than trusts. 
However, wills must go through probate, whereattorney fees and court costs can be quite pricey,
especially if the will is contested. So even thougha trust may cost more upfront to create than a will,
the total costs once probate is factored in can actuallymake a trust the much less expensive option in thelong run. 
Find The Option That’s Right For Your FamilyThe best way for you to determine whether or notyour estate plan should include a will, a living trust,
or some combination of the two is to meet with an 
experienced estate planning attorney. This processshould, at a minimum, include an analysis of yourassets, a discussion of what’s most important to you,
and a clear picture of what will happen to your lovedones when you become incapacitated or die. And whenyou’re done, you should feel 100% confident that youhave the right estate planning solution to fit with yourunique asset profile, family dynamics, and budget.
