The client may also request that the estate plan provide that assets be given by will or living trust to beneficiaries at the client's death, particularly when the client believes there should be management of the IRA asset and supervision over the payout of the bequest. Thus the estate plan frequently provides that IRA benefits be payable at death to a trust.
