What Does Testate Mean In Estate Planning?

To die with a will (opposite of “Intestate”).

Example Of Testate In Regards To Estate Planning

When I went to the probate court’s office after my grandpa died the first thing the lady asked me was “Did he die testate or intestate?”.  I had no idea what she was asking me.  I guess he died testate because he did have a will.
