Have you asked your sister? How about her father? Please appreciate that the money is for your daughter's needs, and you have no right to it should there exist such a trust, but if you have guardianship or conservatorship over her, you are entitled to information. You should remember that a 'special needs' trust usually cannot be tapped into for needs like food and clothing, so you will need to review the document -- if any exists -- to determine what it can be used for.
