Trust Protector Provisions (2 Pages)

This Form is a Trust Protector clause. Many trust grantors are concerned that events will occur after a trust has been created that were unanticipated when the trust became effective. This may occur either with an irrevocable lifetime trust or with a trust that becomes effective in a person’s Will. Perhaps a beneficiary may become incapacitated or act in an unexpected or undesirable manner. Perhaps a selected trustee will prove to be a bad choice. Perhaps trust assets will not have the value the grantor expected. Many “unknowns” can be suggested. The purpose of a Trust Protector clause is to appoint a person or entity and give the appointee the authority to ‘fix” a problem that the grantor cannot fix. The major concerns of the grantor are captured in this Form – namely removal of a trustee, overseeing trust investments, and modifying certain (but not all) the terms of the trust. State law should be consulted to see if there are any special guidelines or provisions that address the scope of a trust protector’s authority.
