Residuary Bequest.  Disposes of the assets remaining after all debts, expenses, taxes and bequests are paid.  Residuary bequests frequently dispose of the bulk of the estate.  A significant change in the value of assets in the estate will affect the size of the residue.  Example: “I give, devise and bequeath to Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center, Four West Red Oak Lane, Suite 330, White Plains, NY 10604, all of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate.”

 

Contingent Bequest.  Enables you to designate one or more beneficiaries who will receive a legacy only if a primary beneficiary predeceases you, or is otherwise unable or unqualified to inherit or disclaims the legacy. Example: “If___________(insert the name of your heir) predeceases me or disclaims any interest in _____________(describe the asset or portion of your estate), I give such property to Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center, Four West Red Oak Lane, Suite 330, White Plains, NY 10604, for its general purposes.”
