Joint Tenant With Rights of Survivorship (JTWROS) – Another great Financial Planning Tip: 

  • Automatically sends assets to the joint holder upon death of other
  • Avoids probate
  • Since Avoids probate, may not be controlled by your Will
  • Very Powerful
  • Can lead to inadvertent mistakes in Estate Planning

They mistake we see most often is the ACCIDENTAL directive to another person without the intent. If you have an account that is JTWROS, make sure this is doing what you want it to from an estate planning perspective.
