Without looking at the whole document, I can't say. It would be strange language for a testator/testatrix (a person making a will) or settlor of a trust to include. The testator /settlor does not get to decide if a beneficiary can disclaim. State and federal law already allows a beneficiary of a will or trust to disclaim so long as the disclaimer is filed within 9 months of death and is in proper form.

So what document contains this language, who made the document and why is it inserted?
