Living Trust

Unforeseen things happen, and First State Bank can help put you at ease with the help of setting up a living trust. The popularity of the living trust has soared in recent years as more people discover its significant estate planning benefits.

As a complete corporate trustee for your Living Trust, the administrative and investment management of your assets transfer to us and will provide you with the financial protection you are accustom to, should something happen to you. A living trust is not usually subject to probate, which can tie up your estate for years and consume a large portion of its value in court fees. It also provides confidentiality of your estate.

Contact our Trust Department today to find out complete details.

Estate Administration

With the loss of a loved one, it is often comforting to have a third party expert to aid in the administration of the estate. At First State Bank, we can help you with the daunting task of managing the final allocations of your loved ones' assets. Our Trust department is staffed with highly trained administrators to serve you in such a capacity and we are here when you need us.


First State Bank's Trust Department is here to provide guardianship of assets. This service provides complete asset management for the protected person or persons, working in the best interest of their current and future needs.

If you need further clarification regarding this subject or need estate planning in general, please call our Trust Department today.
