If I have a Living Trust, do I still need a Will?

Posted on February 17, 2015

Yes. Your Living Trust plan should include a pour-over Will, which acts as a kind of safety net. When you die, the pour-over Will “catches” any forgotten assets and sends them to your Living Trust. The assets may require court involvement as part of your overall estate plan. Also, if you have minor children, a guardian over your minor children will need to be named in your Will.
