- If the client has a will, then the first box should be marked.
- If there is no will, the second boxed should be marked.
- If the ‘other box’ is checked – a description would be needed on how the remaining trust property is to be distributed.

The top section is for entering the monthly amount that is to remain in the trust and the effective date.
In the following example the MIPT amount (established in December 2020) was $200 monthly. The amount changed to $220 monthly for the year 2021.
|Amount that must remain in trust every month||Effective Date|
The bottom section is for entering the accumulated amount for each year and also the total.
In the following example, the $200.00 is for the one month December 2020. The amount for 2021 is $220 monthly for 12 months = $2640. Then the $200 from 2020 is added for a total of $2840.00. That is the amount (from this example) that should be in the MIPT or minus the 3% if trustee takes the compensation.
