Trusts for Bereaved Minors
The Finance Act 2006 introduced a new category of “trusts for bereaved minors”.
A trust of this kind can generally only be set up under:
- the Will (or intestacy) of a deceased parent, including where this is deemed to have happened – for example, following a Deed of Variation; or
- the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme.
A bereaved minor is a person who has not yet reached age 18 and at least one of whose parents has died. Parent can include a step-parent or a person who, immediately before their death, had parental responsibility for the minor. It is possible, though, for a trust of this sort to be set up under the intestacy of a grandparent, great grandparent etc.
