Can my family benefit from a spendthrift trust?

When an Illinois estate planner is worried that his or her heirs cannot handle receiving a large sum of money all at once, a spendthrift trust could be appropriate. A spendthrift trust will dole out your heirs' inheritances to them slowly over time -- perhaps in monthly distributions -- so that there's less danger of your heirs mismanaging the money and spending it irresponsibly on frivolous expenditures.
