(1) to the beneficiary, if not incapacitated or deceased;

(2) to the conservator or other recipient designated by the court for an incapacitated beneficiary; or

(3) upon the beneficiary's death, in the following order:

(A) as last directed in a 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 under AS 13.60.050 ;

(C) as designated in the instrument creating the custodial trust; or
