Pour Over Wills

A pour over will is utilized in situations where the testator has a revocable living trust. It is the safety net to transfer all probate assets to the revocable living trust and those assets will be distributed pursuant to the terms of that trust. It is utilized when trusts are not fully funded by the testator.  This pour over will does not contain separate provisions disposing of tangible personal property so that the testator’s intentions remain private. The pour over will relies on the trust to provide for the disposition scheme of the testator. In other words, the trust is the only beneficiary pursuant to the terms of the pour over will and the trustee of the trust will distribute the probate assets consistent with the terms of the trust.
