Ok, I got a chance to look over the trust again. It is not an A/B trust. I found a list of the in-laws' IRAs which listed the other spouse as beneficiaries first and the family trust second. It was my FIL who said it would just go into the trust. If I find another opening I will suggest my FIL look into getting the paperwork lined up now and that may prompt him to contact a tax professional.

I also found some papers indicating that the in-laws had consulted with the estate law firm for an update in 2009. I had been afraid that they set all this up in 1995 and hadn't looked at it.
