How long is a will or revocable trust valid?

A will or revocable trust remains effective until it is changed or revoked. However, we recommend that you periodically review your will or revocable trust to assure that it provides for your family as originally planned and to take into account new or changed circumstances.

If your will or revocable trust does not include changes in your life that occurred after you created it, it may not accurately reflect how you would want those circumstances addressed at your death. You should consider reviewing and changing your will or revocable trust when you marry or divorce, if there is a birth or death in the family, if a named guardian for your children dies or is no longer available, if the value or type of your property changes significantly, or if you move to another state.
