Description

This is an irrevocable trust created by a grantor for the benefit of multiple minor beneficiaries. It is suitable to be used for the benefit of children or grandchildren. This version speaks to grandchildren, but children can be readily substituted without other modifications. Notably, this trust contains a Crummey right of withdrawal which is designed to give the beneficiaries a present interest in the trust which, in turn, allows the grantor to claim the present interest gift tax exclusion for gifts made to the trust. Unlike a Code Section 2503(c) trust, this Trust does not require that the trust property be distributed to the beneficiaries at age 21. The presence of the Crummey power makes a required distribution at age 21 unnecessary.

As drafted, this Trust is a suitable vehicle to allow the present interest exclusion for the generation-skipping transfer tax (GST), assuming the beneficiary is limited to one grandchild. If multiple grandchildren were involved, absent separate trust shares for each, the present interest exclusion from the GST would not be available. Code Section 2642(c). This trust creates a separate share for each beneficiary.

This Trust gives the trustee discretion to distribute income and principal to the beneficiary at any time for health, education, maintenance and support. When the beneficiary reaches age 21, any accumulated income is paid to the beneficiary, and regular annual income payments commence. Principal is paid to the beneficiary one-third at age 25, one-half of the balance at age 30 and the remaining balance at age 35. If desired, other ages can be substituted for the ages in the Trust, or required distributions could be postponed until an older age.
If the Beneficiary does not survive to receive his or her share outright, the property passes to the Beneficiary’s descendants and, if none, to the Beneficiary’s siblings.

Note the language in paragraph 5 prohibiting the Trust funds from being used by the Trustee to satisfy the grantor’s obligation of support (if any) of the Beneficiary.
