Trustees Can Withdraw For Trust Use

Trust law differs from one state to another, but under no situations can a trustee withdraw funds from the trust for the personal use of the trustee. The trustee of any trust has a fiduciary obligation to follow the terms of the trust arrangement and to ensure paid out funds are not contrary to the purpose mentioned in the trust arrangement.
