I don't get this. All you have to do is cash the check, and possibly, maybe, return a portion of it to the govt in the form of taxes.

I don't think that the OP is wanting to disclaim the trust because of the taxes. If you read the original post, it says that they probably won't ever get any money, because they won't be able to 'demonstrate need':

We are unlikely to ever benefit from the trust as need has to be demonstrated to receive funds.

It appears to me that the OP was posting here to ask if they were going to be responsible for paying taxes on the trust even though they were unlikely to receive any money, and secondly, to see if there was a way to let their kids claim from the trust without the kids having to inherit the trust themselves.
