Some Pennsylvanians may have heard of cryonics -- the freezing of a person after they die in the hopes that someday their body will be revived. Though it may sound like science fiction, there are around 400 people currently being preserved in a frozen state, and some 1,500 living individuals plan to be frozen when they die. But if someone leaves all their money to heirs after they die, what happens if they are frozen and then one day revived?

The estate plans created by Pennsylvania residents will vary from family to family. However, many issues that can be addressed by having a properly worded revocable trust in an estate plan.
