ptheland: "The main issue with having a trust as the beneficiary of an IRA is that typically a trust must withdraw the entire IRA balance within 5 years of the owner's death. It does not have the option to spread IRA withdrawals out over a lifetime.I believe there are ways around this limitation, but I'm far from certain of that. I am certain that I don't know how to accomplish that within a trust and I am also certain that I don't know any potential pitfalls of setting up a trust to spread IRA distributions out over a trust beneficiaries' lifetime (assuming that it IS possible to do so)."Not vouching for any of the following, but upon cursory review they seemed ok:http://www.investopedia.com/articles/retirement/04/081804.as... http://www.morganstanleyfa.com/public/projectfiles/4fc27960-... http://www.trustok.com/about/news/tread-carefully-in-naming-...more if you google: IRA beneificiary qualified trustRegards, JAFO
