    The terms of the trust goven the rules associated with the funds payable upon the death of a beneficiary prior to their achieving the designated age. In some cases, the trust assets will state that funds go to the issue (children) of the beneficiary and, in other cases, the funds will go to another party. If the trust is not clear, a court can be asked to interpret the grantor's intent as best as may be possible. I hope this helps. If you need further questions answered, consult an attorney and bring in all relevant documents for his or her careful review.

    You are in a "pickle" but it can be solved.

    Thank you for contacting me with your question. While not something that is legally a requirement, it would be advisable to include language on the card to let users know there are risks and considerations to be aware of before following the instructions on the card. I looked at some sample approaches used by other online vendors and found a good example of thoughtful disclaimer language at the following link: In the event that you want to discuss this further, feel free to contact me at 914-948-2222 x101.
