It is not necessary to start another trust for the benefit of this 4th individual, so yes, the original trust can be used if the trust specifically has the limitation that he not receive the distribution until 30. Sometimes a new trust is started, because of simplicity, if certain provisions of the trust are inextricably intertwined with the concept of multiple beneficiaries. But if it's pretty clear that the trust can operate with 1/4 of the original amount and without any worry of the other beneficiaries making claims to any interest, etc... then there's no reason to start a new trust. The existing trust should be fine.
