Most people create a trust because they want peace of mind. They want to know their assets will pass on easily once they are gone, or that if they become incapacitated, an appointed trustee can handle their affairs.
However, as the grantor of the trust, you must do more than create the trust documents. For a trust to be effective, you must also fund the trust. Funding a trust means you transfer the assets you want protected by a trust from your name to the name of the trust.
