Testopedia explains Joint tenants in common /JTIC

When two individuals open an account who are not married they may wish for their ownership in the account to transfer to their heirs in the case of their death. In this case the joint account between two adults would be established as joint tenants in common. If one of the owners dies their assets will be distributed according to their Will.
