What happens if I die without a will?

If you die without a will, then you’ve ceded control of the assets and management and distribution of your assets to the state that you’re living in at the time of your death. The state that you’re living in would have intestate laws who would provide who would be the personal representative and who would be the beneficiaries of your estate. By doing your own will, you can select the person that you want and who the beneficiaries that you want to receive your assets.
