Text of Fla. Stat. § 736.0103(13)

“Interests of the beneficiaries” means the beneficial interests intended by the settlor as provided in the terms of a trust.

History of Fla. Stat. § 736.0103(13)

The term “interests of beneficiaries” was defined slightly differently when the Florida Trust Code first took effect in 2007. At that point, the relevant portion of the code read:

“Interests of the beneficiaries” means the beneficial interests provided in the terms of the trust.

The phrase “intended by the settlor” was added to the definition in 2018.

The placement of the definition has also changed over the years. The term was originally defined in Fla. Stat. § 736.0103(10). At that time, Fla. Stat. § 736.0103(13) defined the term “property.”
