I am so sorry for your loss. Generally speaking the beneficiaries of the trust are to receive a copy of the trust document.  Is the Administrator of the estate also the Trustee?  Usually the Trustee will forward the benficiaries a copy of the trust.  Did the decedent die without a last Will and Testament and was the trust created before hand and all the property transferred prior to the death of the decedent?  Or was there a Will and was the trust created within it?  Either way you should receive documents regarding the estate.  How it was all created may impact in the estate in other ways so you should be aware of that as well.
