Advancement

Any asset given to a person before the donor's death with the agreement that the asset will be considered part of the recipient's inheritance from the donor's estate when he/she dies. That is, if an elderly person has left his granddaughter 20% of his estate in his will, but gives her cash or assets equal in value to 5% of the estate as an advancement, then the granddaughter will only receive 15% of the estate when the elderly person dies.
