CHARITABLE REMAINDER TRUSTS A CRT provides an annual stream of payments to one or more noncharitable beneficiaries for a term of years with an irrevocable remainder interest to be transferred to charity There are two types: the charitable remainder annuity trust (CRAT) and the charitable remainder unitrust (CRUT).
This ruling-which applies if either a Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust or Charitable Remainder Unitrust names the SNT as beneficiary- represented quite a break from prior law which, among other things, required that a CRT's income be used for the trust beneficiary's support-a requirement that would have, in most cases, ended a beneficiary's eligibility for government benefits, such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid.
There are many types of CRTS, a few of which include; A) charitable remainder annuity trust (CRAT) which pays a fixed dollar amount annually; B) charitable remainder unitrust which pays a fixed percentage of the trust's assets annually; C) charitable pooled income fund which is set up by the charity allowing many donors to contribute.
One variant, a net income charitable remainder unitrust (NI-CRUT), permits the trustee to distribute only the amount of trust income for that year, should that amount be less than the distribution that would otherwise be required [5].
