Beneficiary - an heir at law in an intestate estate, and devisee, in a testate estate. The term "beneficiary" does not apply to an heir at law or a devisee after his interest in the estate has been satisfied. In the case of a devise to an existing trust or trustee, or to a trust or trustee described by Will, in the absence of a conflict of interest of the trust, the trustee is a beneficiary of the estate. An owner of a beneficial interest in the trust is a beneficiary of the trust and is, in the absence of a conflict of interest of the trust, not a beneficiary of the estate.
