Trust and Fiduciary Services
“Trust Company” is part of our name for good reason. We can be a valuable and trusted component in managing our customers’ financial matters when they are gone or unable to do so. The staff and trust officers of United Bank & Trust Company can work with you to develop and carry out a plan that assure the financial well being of you and your loved ones. There just is no good reason not to do estate planning!
United Bank & Trust Company and Your Estate
A well thought out estate plan offers several important benefits:
- It brings peace of mind because you – not the state – decide who inherits your assets and family heirlooms.
- Your beneficiaries are more at ease, too, because they know your estate plan is in place, which alleviates them of the worry and stress of wondering how everything will be handled.
- If your estate is large, the tax savings from a properly designed estate plan can be very, very significant.
United Bank & Trust Company and your attorney are important members of your estate planning team. Your attorney takes the lead by working with you to develop the right kind of estate plan for accomplishing your goals. Once a plan is in place and the time is appropriate, we are there to help carry it out.
Examples of our estate and trust services include:
- Executor or Co-Executor: The bank, as executor, works with your attorney to carry out the terms of your will. This includes preparation of your estate inventory, publication of required notices, filing of all tax returns and court reports, conveyance of property and final settlement of the estate.
- Trustee or Co-Trustee: If your estate plan calls for a trust, you may choose to name United Bank & Trust Company as your trustee. As trustee, the bank will professionally manage your trust assets and distribute the income and principal to the designated beneficiaries in accordance with the terms of your trust agreement. The bank provides all trust accounting services and files required tax returns. If your trust calls for annual reports to your trust beneficiaries or to the court, the bank prepares and files these reports, as well.
United Bank & Trust Company as Conservator
As a court approved conservator, the bank manages the assets for a person who is unable to handle their own financial affairs. In this role, the bank also sees that all bills are paid on time and that all tax returns are promptly and properly filed. The bank also prepares and files annual reports to the court.
