The problem with having other than "natural persons" names as IRA beneficiaries is that the entire account must be distributed within 5 years after death of the owner.

Going over all this with a tax advisor is an excellent idea.
Yes, can't agree more. Specifically with someone well-versed in trust and estate issues. IRAs going into one or more trusts is an area fraught with the potential for problems.
