The trust is spread into three accounts. I'm not 100% positive about how it works. The beneficiary has limited control over the trust. There is a withdrawal rate of 8% from the trust. I think that just comes from just one of the accounts. I believe a second account is used just for housing expenses. Finally, there is the third account. I think the beneficiary can do whatever they want with the money from that account.

The trust is made up of about 67% in stock funds, 30% in bond funds and about 3% cash.

The $100,000 I mentioned is separate from the trust. It's in a savings account.
