How to Find Out Who Is the Beneficiary of a Family Trust in Arkansas?

    • 1). Ask the creator. If the creator is alive, the simplest way to find out who the beneficiary is will be to ask him.

    • 2). Ask the trustee. If the creator is no longer living, the trustee has the legal authority to inform beneficiaries of the trust's information. By Arkansas law, the trustee can be a beneficiary of the trust but if she is the sole trustee, she cannot be the sole beneficiary.

    • 3). Visit the Arkansas courthouse where the creator -- or his attorney -- recorded the trust to ask for a copy of the trust deed. The trust will list the beneficiaries, trustee(s) and disbursement conditions of the trust's content.
