Trustee Services

Peace of Mind for you and your family

Peace of mind comes from knowing you have chosen the right trustee to protect and administer the assets you have worked a lifetime to accumulate. Trustees can be spouses, or children, a friend or an attorney - but unfortunately there could be risks involved with these choices. Family members may not be able to serve effectively as trustees because they may be overwhelmed by the duties, may be unfamiliar with your situation, they live a long distance away or lack investment knowledge. The same is true of friends. Attorneys may be very knowledgeable in some areas, but there is an inherent conflict of interest when an attorney drafts a trust agreement and serves as trustee.

Because choosing a known person involves risk, often times, customers select corporate trustees.

By choosing Capitol Federal® as your trustee or co-trustee, you are selecting a team of professionals who are committed to increasing the value of your trust. 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. We keep detailed records to effectively manage the settlement of your trust with the lowest possible cost and taxes. More importantly, we assure that the assets in the trust are distributed according to your wishes. Placing these responsibilities in the hands of a qualified trust-settlement specialist – like Capitol Federal – relieves someone close to you from settling your affairs.
