Under a living ( or a “revocable inter vivos”)trust, a person transfers ownership of their assets to another entity while alive. The terms of the trust instruct the entity on how to manage the person’s assets before and after death. This allows the person to avoid the probate process, and the possibility of a court-appointed conservatorship upon incapacity.
