This article explains how to remove either a beneficiary or trustee from the trust record.
This action will delete the association from the trust completely and should only be used for associations which have been entered in error.
Historical associations should simply have their access removed, but should remain recorded in the trust's profile to maintain an accurate record of the trust. If you are wanting to leave the historical association on the trust as a record please see:
Deleting Associated Parties
Enter the Trust workspace and click on Parties.
Tick the box next to the person you want to delete from the trust.
Beneficiary & Trustee Association
