Full Answer

A revocable living trust functions in the same manner as a will, with a few additional benefits. However, it is more complicated and expensive than a will. The trust becomes irrevocable after the person who set it up passes away. A trustee is designated to oversee the trust and is the one to dole out the trust's assets to the beneficiaries after the person who set it up dies.
