The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) can assist in your estate planning. You may wish to consider the following estate planning options for your trust land or restricted land:
- You may write a will to direct who will receive your trust or restricted property.
- You may also consider a sale, exchange, or gift conveyance of your trust or restricted property (must be approved by the BIA). You may retain a life estate.
Contact your local BIA agency for assistance and information regarding such conveyances.
