This question is in...

This question is in regard to a Irrevocable Living Trust. Can a Grantor set up an ILT such that during the lifetime of the Trustee(s) the Trustee(s) receive 60% of the interest earned by the Trust and the other beneficiaries earn the remaining 40%? Once the Trustee(s) pass away then the principal would be split between the other beneficiaries.

Good afternoon. Yes, the trust can be set up that way, but you are confusing the terminology. A living trust is by definition revocable until the grantor dies and then becomes irrevocable. If the trust is going to be irrevocable from the start, it's really not a living trust; rather, it's simply an irrevocable trust. But, in either case, the trust provisions can contain the provisions that you referenced.
