THE WAITRESS, THE WEDDING & THE WILL – A STORY OF HOW ONE MAN’S SIMPLE TRUST PROTECTED HIS ESTATE
While a lot has been written about “Henson” Trusts and their usefulness for protecting a beneficiary’s means-tested government disability pension from claw-back upon receipt of an inheritance, surprisingly little has been written to publicize “Banton” Trusts and their usefulness for protecting a beneficiary’s inheritance from a third-party claim.
A Banton Trust was a trust that George Banton created in the mid-90’s that proved to be a pivotal estate planning maneuver. On his death, a trust that he had created a few years before ended up preserving some inheritance for his children while withstanding an attack on his estate by his new bride.
