Wills vs. Revocable Living Trust

Today we’re going to be talking to you a bit about the difference between a will and a revocable living trust. Basically these documents do the same thing–they say what happens to your assets when you die. However, a revocable living trust is set up during your lifetime and funded with your assets while you are still alive. In a will, you name a personal representative and that is the person that will open up a probate estate for you and distribute your property according to what your will says
