Many account holders use trusts to plan for their estate, family, taxes, etc. When opening these special accounts, you need to know about proper documentation, CIP, and signature card responsibilities. You must also understand the trustee(s) authority and duties and your institution’s responsibility and liability. This webinar will cover standard trust-opening procedures and many questions that arise as trusts and account holder situations change. 

Covered topics

  • How is CIP (Customer Identification Program) accomplished on a trust? 
  • How are signature card contracts styled and what disclosures are given? 
  • Is there a difference in how the account is opened depending on whether a trust is revocable or irrevocable? Whose TIN is used? Does it matter? 
  • Who are the key players in a trust? 
  • What happens if a trustee dies? What documentation is needed and what happens if the trust becomes irrevocable? 
  • Who is the payee when depositing, opening, or closing a trust?
