If you know that you’re going to find it more difficult to manage your money in the future, it’s a good idea to get some measures in place now so that someone else will be able to do it for you
Do you need someone to manage money for you – for example to use it to help someone after your death, or to pay for your care later on? One way to do this is to put the money into a trust.
