Myth: Dying without a will goes to the state

A great video for our #MythbusterMondays. A will does NOT avoid probate. AND dying without a will does NOT mean that it goes to the state. The state is equivalent to the beneficiary of last resort. The statute specifically tries to find any family, even remote family, before going to the state.  Watch and learn that dying without a will does NOT mean that it goes to the state.
