Do You Still Need a Will?

Learn More
A living trust generally is not a stand-alone estate planning document, and it is not a substitute for a will. A living trust should always be created in tandem with a "pourover" will. This document directs that, upon your death, any property that passes under your will is to be transferred into the trust and distributed according to its terms. This safety net catches any assets that were able to go inside the trust yet were not previously transferred into it. Using a will and a revocable living trust together creates a winning combination.
