Bequests are the transfers of wealth that occur upon a donor’s death. Bequests can take several forms such as:

  • Specific bequest – a certain amount of cash, securities, or property
  • General bequest – property that is similar to all other items distributed, usually cash.
  • Percentage bequest – a stated percentage of the donor’s estate.
  • Residual bequest – all or a portion of what remains of the estate after specific and general bequests are distributed.
