n this context, a restatement is an amendment to a trust. It is different from an amendment changing only specific provisions of a trust in that a restatement of trust replaces and revokes all previous amendments.

Committed San Francisco Attorneys, Creating Unambiguous Trust Amendments
Some revocable living trusts are substantially out-of-date, or have become irrelevant due to changes in the statutes or case law. Amending these trusts paragraph by paragraph could result in a very complicated amendment that is difficult for future trustees to understand. It is faster (and therefore cheaper) in many cases for an attorney to start over with a format that the attorney knows is valid and applicable to the situation.
The name of the trust, the trustees and the date that the trust was established remain the same. Also, deeds, bank accounts, brokerage accounts and other investments do not need to be changed if the title of the assets is already in the trust.
