You might find help at http://www.dtonline.com/pfa/payout.htm
which, among many other things, says this:

"Spouse: If a spouse is the beneficiary, joint life expectancy can be used regardless of the difference in the spouses' ages. Additionally, a deceased spouse's IRA may be rolled over into a surviving spouse's IRA -- the surviving spouse could then name his/her beneficiary, which would perhaps further extend the distribution period."

and this:

"Trust: IRA assets can be placed in a trust for named beneficiaries (trusts are frequently used for transfers to minors, grandchildren, or others who are not capable of managing assets). Trust beneficiaries generally qualify as designated beneficiaries of a retirement account if certain conditions are met."

Regards,

Chips
