Substitute Beneficiaries > Will Writing Service Glossary

Substitute Beneficiaries - the name of the person(s) who will receive the benefit that the first named beneficiaries would have received i.e. ‘they step in’ like substitute players in sport. This happens when the first named beneficiaries have died before the testator, or in the case of children who need to reach a certain age to inherit - they have died before reaching that age.
