Hi, Creating my family trust where the beneficiaries are reasonably generally stated. However 2 of the parents/in laws are receiving the pension or will be potentially in the future. I have read that any beneficiary is deemed by Centrelink to have control of all the assets and income of the whole trust, for Centrelink assessment purposes. This will likely have significant impact on their eligibility for Centrelink. Is the usual process to explicitly exclude anyone who may potentially receive benefits, by naming them as being excluded in the deed? Or a clause to allow themselves to nominate for exclusion? Seems odd that my decision as a trustee, can affect their payments, even though they may not contribute to the decision or even know about it. Thoughts/experiences?? Thanks!
