In South Dakota, a living trust gives instructions for the disposition of your assets after you die. However, unlike a traditional will, a living trust can also provide instructions in the event you become incapacitated before you die. After a living trust has been established, you transfer your assets to it by changing the titles and beneficiary designations of your assets to your trust.
