A corporate trustee is a legal entity, such as Midland Trust Company based here in Rockford, IL, that serves in a fiduciary capacity to manage and administer various trusts and estate plans on behalf of beneficiaries. Unlike individual trustees who may lack specialized expertise, corporate trustees have extensive knowledge in trust management, investment strategies, financial planning, and estate administration. By choosing Midland Trust Company as your corporate trustee, you can rest easy that the wishes and best interests of the trust creator (grantor) are upheld, and the needs of the beneficiaries are addressed.

Our corporate trustee services in Rockford, IL, cover various scenarios:

  • Guardianship of the Estate (or Conservatorship): When an individual is unable to manage his/her own financial affairs and has been adjudicated as disabled, the court will appoint a person or corporation to manage the individual’s financial affairs. In some states, the term Guardianship is used, while in other States, the term Conservatorship is used. In each instance, the appointed person or corporation is responsible to manage the financial affairs of the child or adult adjudicated disabled. As corporate guardian, we manage and safeguard assets and offer an array of services to address current and future needs, working to ensure the individual’s health and well-being are protected.
  • Special Needs Trust: For beneficiaries with disabilities, a special needs trust is designed to provide financial support without jeopardizing their government benefits. As corporate trustee, we manage the trust funds, disbursing funds for supplemental needs while navigating complex regulations to maintain beneficiary eligibility for public assistance programs.
  • Traditional Trust and Estate Plan: In the case of a traditional trust, where a grantor establishes a trust for one or more beneficiaries, a corporate trustee serves as the trustee. We administer the trust according to the grantor's instructions, manage trust assets, make distributions, file tax returns, and handle other administrative tasks with the goal of ensuring the trust's objectives are met and beneficiaries are well-cared for.
