Understanding Terms in Wills and Trusts
A will is a legal document that dictates which individuals and entities will receive property from a person, known as the “testator” or “principal,” upon the occasion of their death.
A trust, meanwhile, is a legal agreement that can be used to distribute a principal’s property leading up to or after their death or incapacitation.
The individual who carries out the principal’s will is known as the “executor,” while the individual who carries out a person’s trust is known as the “trustee.” Those who receive the principal’s property are known as “beneficiaries.”
