Our Trust Specialists listen, so they have an-depth understanding of your current situation and future goals before putting together any recommendations. Following are some terms that are helpful to know:

  • A Trust Account helps ensure the successful transfer of your estate.
  • A Revocable Living Trust includes directions for managing your assets while you are living and for distributing them after death.
  • A Testamentary Trust can provide sound financial management for your heirs. It is established by your will and becomes effective after your death.
  • A Credit Shelter Trust is designed to minimize taxes by applying any estate tax exemptions to either spouse.
  • An Agency Account helps you manage investments by assigning specific duties to the professionals at Citizens State Bank in a written agreement. If support is needed for investments, bill paying, or other management duties, that form of agreement is called a Custodial Agency Account.
  • A Guardianship Account is necessary when the account holder is in need of some financial assistance or when a court-appointed fiduciary is needed. Our Trust Specialists fulfill those duties, helping ensure the best results.
  • In certain types of transactions, we hold an account in a borrower’s name to pay obligations as determined between a seller and buyer, or a borrower and an institution. These are called Escrow Exchanges or 1031 Exchanges in which Citizens State Bank is named as the escrow agent.

It's important to create an estate plan that's properly structured to address your family's needs. We're committed to helping you get it right. We can help:

Create/update your will: Your will is the primary document used to transfer your assets when you pass. Making decisions now about how you wish your legacy to be passed on can help avoid problems later.

Review your estate plan: You need to review your estate plan whenever you change your marital status, make a career change, or change your address. We'll help you identify opportunities to adjust your estate plan as your current situation and future goals change.

Select an executor: Choosing a reliable executor or personal representative to settle your estate gives you - and your heirs - security and peace of mind. We have the expertise and experience to handle this important role.

Consider trust and gift strategies: If you have a sizable estate to manage, you may save on taxes through the use of trust and gifting strategies. We can help you determine the best account types for tax purposes.
