I assumed that is A-B type trust - but that must be verified.

Please see here HOW A_B trust works.

http://www.finweb.com/retirement/ab-trusts.html

The trust document states that when the first spouse dies, the AB trust must be split into two separate trusts: Trust A will contain the deceased spouse's property, and Trust B will hold the property of the surviving spouse.

So far - if that allocation was NOT made - you would need to correct that and do allocation as soon as possible.
