A TINT is being set up for my disabled sibling and I have been asked to be trustee . She has a money manager to deal with the day to day help , and that person would be my contact . I have read the information and understand the duties , but I cannot figure out the time commitment and feasibility of handling a trust long distance . I have no plans to travel to her state , which is across the country . My sister does not want a pooled trust . The trust would not be large ; it is the post - mortgage money from the sale of her home .
