Who gets a copy of a will after a testator dies?

Estate attorneys determine who is entitled to receive a copy of the Will, independent of any state law. 

Here’s a list of people who may receive a copy of a Will:

  • Heirs at Law and/or Prior Beneficiaries
  • Personal Representative Named in the Will
  • Beneficiaries Named in the Will
  • Successor Trustee of the Testator's Revocable Living Trust
  • Accountant for the Estate
  • Remember: Wills Are Public Record
  • IRS and/or State Taxing Authority

The Last Will and Testament is not required by law to be read out loud to anyone.
