The Connecticut Uniform Trust Code, which will take effect on January 1, 2020, establishes a variety of rules on creating, modifying, terminating and enforcing trusts. A trustee owes certain duties and responsibilities to the beneficiaries of a trust. The Uniform Trust Code establishes default rules that, apart from a few exceptions, can be overridden by the terms of the trust, and addresses the trustee’s duties, powers and liabilities.
