Answer: Generally, yes. Almost every asset should be transferred to you as trustee of your trust. However, there are certain exceptions, such as qualified plans (e.g., IRAs and Keogh Plans). In addition, certain assets such as “sub-S” stock requires special trust language. It is highly recommended that you follow the advice of your attorney or tax accountant in regard to which assets should be transferred into your living trust.
