Can an additional trustee be added to an existing trust?

The answer is yes. In most instances, an additional trustee can be added to an existing trust. Now, this will be governed by the trust language of the trust document itself.

Usually the trustee is empowered to delegate authority to a co-trustee. If you’re the person who created the trust, you could always amend the trust and add an additional trustee to the trust.

If you have questions about adding or changing the trustee of your trust, please give us a call.
