What We Do / FAQs
Can Country Club Trust Company prepare my estate planning documents?
Although Country Club Trust Company is staffed with several lawyers, we are not able to draft estate planning documents for clients. We are, however, available to recommend several estate planning lawyers who practice in the Kansas City metropolitan area.
How do you calculate your fees for handling a trust?
Fees are calculated based upon the market value of assets for which the Trust Company is serving as Trustee. Fees typically will be about 1% annually with the percentage becoming less as the trust is larger.
