Legal Question in Wills and Trusts in Massachusetts
In a revocable trust, if a sum of money is to be distributed by the Trustee upon Grantors death to living "grandchildren" does that also apply to great-grandchildren?

The answer depends on the language of the trust. If the grandchildren must be living, then it may be that their children (the great-grandchildren) are not included. Check if there is language that applies to grandchildren who predecease the Grantor. You should probably take the trust to an estate attorney who can check the language regarding this and other provisions. Good luck
