I've asked the trustees of a trust to confirm that I am a beneficiary, which is what I believe to be the case. Do they have to give an honest answer?

    What jurisdiction are you talking about? It may affect the answer. I am aware of (at least historically) setting up secret trusts to support and legitimize bastard children post-death (and avoid scandal and social stigma in the decedent's lifetime).
