Please enjoy this informative presentation, featuring Linda Strohschein, explaining the 2020 Illinois Trust Code. We know that changes in the law can impact what happens even after our death, but taking the time now to update your trust can help ensure that it does what you want it to do. After viewing the video, please feel free to call our office to review your trust document with an attorney, who can help you understand how this change in the law may affect your personal situation.
“The Illinois Trust Code is a major shift in the way the State of Illinois will look at our trusts going forward,” says Strohschein. “The purpose of the new Illinois Trust Code is to bring together a comprehensive clarification of the trust laws and to provide new solutions to outstanding problems with the old laws. I created this video to provide you with a basic overview of what the changes might mean for you and your trust and look forward to having the opportunity for a deeper discussion as to how this change may impact you.”
