HBCU Money™ B-School: Revocable Trust


revocable trust also sometimes known as or referred to as a revocable living trust, sets provisions altered, changed, or even canceled dependent upon the grantor of the trust. During the “life” of the revocable trust, income earned is distributed to the grantor or grantors, and only after the grantor’s death does property held within it transfer to the stated beneficiaries.
