A. Upon termination of a custodial trust, the custodial trustee shall transfer the unexpended custodial trust property as follows:

2. To the conservator or such other recipient as is designated by the court for an incapacitated beneficiary; or

3. Upon the beneficiary's death, in the following order:

a. As last directed in writing signed by the deceased beneficiary while not incapacitated and received by the custodial trustee during the life of the deceased beneficiary;

b. To the survivor of multiple beneficiaries if survivorship is provided for pursuant to § 64.2-905;

c. As designated in the instrument creating the custodial trust; or

d. To the estate of the deceased beneficiary.

B. If, when the custodial trust would otherwise terminate, the distributee is incapacitated, the custodial trust continues for the use and benefit of the distributee as beneficiary until the incapacity is removed or the custodial trust is otherwise terminated.
