What If We Die In A Common Disaster? Do Our Wills Need To Make Provisions For That?

Washington law provides that if a transfer depends on an individual surviving the death of another, the individual surviving must survive the other person by one hundred and twenty hours, or it will be treated as if they predeceased the other person.

In your will, you will want to provide for an alternate beneficiary, and potentially a second alternate as well, in case your primary beneficiary does not survive you by one hundred and twenty hours as required by state law.
