5 Ways Trust Administration Software Can Help You Manage Beneficiary Finances
There’s a lot to keep track of when it comes to managing funds for individual and pooled trust beneficiaries. Distribution requests and approvals, court reporting, compliant recordkeeping for receiving public benefits, budgeting – professional fiduciaries and trustees do it all. But that doesn’t mean you have to do it alone.
Using trust administration software can help you streamline your processes and save you time. Here are five ways a platform like True Link Financial’s* can help you manage finances across your beneficiaries.
1. Manage everything in one place
Instead of working from multiple spreadsheets or tools, streamline your workflows with all of a beneficiary’s or trust’s information in one place.
2. Save time on cash management and distributions
Fiduciaries and trustees can spend a lot of time handling disbursement requests, approvals, and payouts. With software like True Link’s, you can pay bills, disburse funds, and manage budgets efficiently, giving you more time to focus on serving your clients.
3. Built-in recordkeeping and reporting capabilities
Trusts and other fiduciary vehicles often come with a number of reporting and recordkeeping requirements. Using a trust administration platform can help you simplify your accounting and reconciliation and quickly access the reports and records you need.
4. Setup team workflows with the right level of permissions
When you have multiple people in your organization helping you manage several trusts, it’s important to have efficient, compliant processes. Software like True Link’s will allow you to customize individual roles and levels of access to help you establish clear workflows and protocols for disbursements, deposits, and more.
5. Streamline beneficiary communication
With a trust administration platform like True Link’s, you can activate a beneficiary portal and grant access to beneficiaries and their advocates. Through this portal, they can view statements and request distributions online, instead of over the phone.
