My husband and I were made POA and executorship of my

My husband and I were made POA and executorship of my brother-in-laws Revocable Living Trust in 12/2015. We filled out the paperwork and had it notarized. My brother-in-law passed away 5/2/2017. We are trying to get reimbursed from his LTC insurance. We sent all the proper documentation and inside the trust it states that under collections proceeds " collection under article 3 administration after the death of the trustor....etc". However, LTC is requesting that we submit executor documentation of his estate, such as Certificate of Appointment, Letter of Testamentary,Small Estate Affidavit, Letter of Affirmation or Letter of Authority for Personal Representative. They are unclear of what California requires. My question is...If we already have a Revocable Living Trust and it states that we are responsible to administer collection proceeds after his death, is this not proof? We are just trying to get reimbursed for services that LTC contract is to take care of. Thank you, Marlo
