Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to helpwith your situation or get you to someone who can.
The sister has no legal authority to put the money into a trust if brother doesn't want it there. If sister is the executrix of the estate, then she has a legal duty to disburse the funds to him directly once the estate is settled. She doesn't get to play "mom" and decide where his inheritance goes.
If she refuses to distribute the money to him directly, he can hire an attorney to file a "motion to compel distribution" and the judge will issue an order for her to do so and may hold her personally liable for his attorney fees in doing so.
But giving someone a power of attorney wouldn't help because only a trustee can remove assets from a trust.
