When the facts at the time of distribution of property to a trust are such that the
trust would be inoperative under the terms of the instrument creating the trust for
any reason, including the death of a beneficiary, renunciation by a beneficiary, the
exercise of a right to withdraw the property by a beneficiary, or the attainment of
a stipulated age by a beneficiary, the personal representative or the trustee authorized
or required to make the distribution of that property to the trust may distribute
the property directly to the person or persons entitled to it under the terms of the
instrument creating the trust without the interposition of the establishment of the
trust. If only a portion of the trust would be inoperative, the property distributable
to that portion of the trust may be distributed directly to the person or persons
entitled to the property under the terms of the instrument creating the trust.
