A Living Trust is called a revocable trust because the trust maker is able to change the terms of the trust, or revoke the trust entirely. Upon the death of the trust maker, the terms of the trust can not be changed and at such time the trust may become an irrevocable trust. Depending on the type of trust form selected for a married couple, the entire Living Trust may be amended or revoked after the death of the first spouse (Simple Trust or Disclaimer Trust) or part of the trust attributable to the deceased spouse may become irrevocable at the death of the first spouse (A-B or Marital Trusts and the disclaimed portion of the Disclaimer Trust).
