With or without a will, the assets of a person who dies in Pennsylvania will be distributed according to plan. Without a will, that plan is already dictated by state statutes. In such a situation, the person is said to have died intestate. A Pennsylvania will allows the person’s assets to be distributed according to that person’s wishes as specified in the will.
