Pour-Over Will Basics

If a Living Trust is part of your estate plan, you may also want to create a Pour Over Will. It transfers any remaining property and assets to your Living Trust after your death, so nothing gets left out, or has to go through probate separately. It also allows you to appoint guardians for your children, like a standard Last Will.

Use the Pour-Over Will document if:

  • You have previously created a Living Trust or Joint Living Trust.
  • You want to designate that assets should be distributed to the appropriate Living Trust.
  • You want to designate a person to carry out the terms of the Pour-Over Will.
  • You want to name a guardian to take care of your minor children.

This document is sometimes called a Last Will and Testament.


A Pour-Over Will's primary function is exactly what it sounds. After your death, the Will pours, or transfers, any not previously transferred property into your Living Trust. This ensures that all your property is distributed according to your Living Trust. Pour-Over Wills also distribute your personal property such as clothing, jewelry and furniture. It can be used to provide care for your minor children too. This is a specialized Will that is used as a supplementary document to your Living Trust or Joint Living Trust. A Pour-Over Will should only be created if you have previously completed a Living Trust or Joint Living Trust.
