"> What is a living trust and how do they work?
A living trust is a common type of trust used to transfer trust property to beneficiaries without probate. After you make a living trust, you transfer property into the trust and you become the trust’s trustee. A living trust is revocable, so you can change it during your lifetime. After you die, the trust becomes irrevocable and your successor trustee distributes trust property to beneficiaries following the terms of the trust.
