I'm certainly no expert and have no direct experience in a similar thing, but, this just doesn't sound correct. Having he, she, and a trust as joint owners seems to confuse the issue distinuishing trust assets with other assets. I have had problems transferring money and stock from an individual or joint account to a trust account. I have changed a joint account to a trust account at Vanguard without a problem or taxable event.But they said they could "add" the trust to the existing account, so it would be the trust along with my wife and me listed as owners (3 owners).

The only time the trust nature of the trust comes into play is when I die. I am not sure what rocket's concerns are.

So whom did they give your money to? Did you know any of them?
