At your death, two types of assets must be subject to the Probate Process. They are:
1. Assets that are not joint with a living joint owner.
2. Assets that do not have a living beneficiary.
A Revocable Living Trust does not die when the person establishing the Revocable Living Trust dies. Properly funding the Revocable Living Trust will allow the Successor Trustee to gain control over all the assets without the Probate Process being involved. (See the What is Meant By Funding the Trust question and answer).
