Trust Settlement

Save Time at Trust Settlement

By creating a living trust, you can create a framework for the effective management of your financial affairs during your lifetime and ensure the accurate distribution of assets to your loved ones when the need arises.

Trusts are written legal agreements between you and a trustee under which the trustee manages the trust assets. Trusts also help keep family matters private by avoiding probate, which in turn, helps minimize trust settlement costs.

When Capitol Federal® serves as trustee or in a trust-settlement capacity, we accept the responsibility involved in coordinating the efforts of your attorneys and accountants and keep detailed records to effectively manage the settlement of your trust with the lowest possible cost and taxes. Most important, we assure that the assets in the trust are distributed according to your wishes.

Our trustees have settlement expertise, which lowers costs, saves settlement time and increases trust accuracy. We protect beneficiaries' interests through prudent investing of estate funds and by analyzing cash needs, paying bills and managing real estate. At a time when you need to know your interests are being looked after, a consultation with Capitol Federal can be helpful - freeing you or someone close to you from the burden of preparing your assets for your beneficiaries.
