I am the trustee, it has my name on it. Due to possibly being robbed by the individual who took over my trust fund making it a special needs trust, i cant reall talk to the perosn who set it up. I might have the name of one lawyer involved, but i think i was given a false name as ive searched for this lawyer and he doesnt exist. Ive been talking to the DA of the county the trust was set up in, as a special needs trust, and he hasnt helped much. Im not sure if i need more information to give other than my name birthday, ssn, names of the guardianships. Maybe a lawyer or two that were involved.. it was a small city and i have a rare name im just wondering what other information could be used to find the trust fund..

Odds are that you are the beneficiary, not the Trustee. I set up trusts all the time for minor beneficiaries with their names. The person who manages the trust fund is the Trustee. Good luck to you.

As noted, even if you find the trust fund's account number, the bank or brokerage account will not give you the information without being the Trustee. I'm sorry, but you need to work through your contacts not the financial system to determine what's going on here. Your best bet is to retain an attorney who can assist you.
