The Connecticut Uniform Trust Code:  Big Changes in Connecticut’s Trust Laws

Speaker

Attorney Jeff Rivard
Czepiga Daly Pope & Perri, Berlin

Program Description

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. 

At this seminar you will learn the important changes and provisions of the Uniform Trust Code, why these provisions were added, what these provisions mean for you when creating a trust and much more. You’ll learn about:

  • The 14 provisions that cannot be overridden by the terms of the trust
  • The fiduciary duties and liabilities of a trustee
  • The provisions in the CT Uniform Trust code that outline directed trusts
  • Provisions regarding domestic asset protection trusts (APT)
  • Changes in the amount of time a trust may run
