Does Capital One have Trust accounts? 

Yes! If you have an existing Capital One Bank account, you can convert it to Trust ownership. We currently offer this option for Revocable Living Trusts (see eligible products above).

What types of accounts can be converted to Trust?

You can convert any Capital One 360 account except for minor accounts, business accounts, and IRAs. This includes savings accounts, checking accounts, and CDs. See the full list of eligible products above.

How do I change my Trust Street Address?

Your Trust Street Address (the address listed on the Certification of Trust form) will be used to send you documents specific to your trust account, such as tax forms. This information cannot be updated online and will not change if you update your own personal or mailing address in your Profile.

 

To change your Trust Street Address, please call 1-800-655-2265. You will be connected with a frontline associate who will reach out to Capital One's back office Trust team in order to make the requested updates to your Trust address information.

How many Trustees can be on an account? 

You can have up to three Trustees on a trust account (one of them must be the Grantor). All Trustees will have equal and independent access to the accounts.

Does the Grantor have to be a Trustee? 

Yes, the Grantor must be one of the Trustees on a trust account.

Can a minor be a Trustee? 

No, anyone under the age of 18 cannot be listed as a Trustee.

How long does it take to convert my account(s) to Trust? 

It may take approximately 10 business days to convert your account(s) to Trust ownership. Requests may take longer depending on the volume of requests we receive.

Can I open a Trust account or do I have to convert an existing one? 

At this time, you cannot directly open a Trust account. You can convert an existing account to Trust ownership or open a new personal account and then convert it to Trust. See the full list of eligible products above.

Can I list my Trust as a beneficiary instead of converting an account? 

You cannot list a Trust as a POD Beneficiary on any of your accounts. See the manage beneficiaries page for more details.

What if I can't obtain in-person notarization? 

If you are unable to obtain in-person notarization for this document, your state may have implemented virtual notary rules. You can visit the National Notary Association to confirm if this option is available in your state.
