What Is The Difference Between A Revocable Trust And An Irrevocable Trust?

Both of these trusts can be called living trusts as long as you are still alive. Upon someone's death, a revocable trust automatically turns into an irrevocable trust.

Revocable trust — A revocable trust allows you to make changes to amend or revoke the items listed in the trust while you are still alive and competent to make changes. This can be useful when creating estate plans earlier in your life because there is more time for things to change that could impact the plans you have made. Possible life events creating a need for changes include a divorce, remarriage, birth of children or death of someone named in the trust, to name a few.

Irrevocable trust — This trust is set up by you, the settlor, so that a trustee takes over control of the assets and property as soon as the document goes into effect. Doing this means you no longer own the assets so they are protected from taxes.
