personal benefit


personal benefit
For the benefit of a person individually. As the term is used in a testamentary gift, the words do not limit the beneficiary to so much as is necessary for his support. The word benefit is much broader than the word support. But it is not so broad as to include any purpose to which the absolute owner of property can devote it. Re Robinson, 101 Vt 464, 75 ALR 59.
