Update August 2019: after multiple rounds of wrong information I had to file form 1310. The check came in my personal name. I had to cash that check as myself, then make a matching deposit to the Trust.

Original response: I called the IRS, reached the trust division, and was told that this is just one situation where no form applies. I was instructed to write a letter requesting the re-issue, and include proof of the name of the successor trust. I was told not to use form 1310.

Please note my bank's policy prohibits depositing checks made to the name of the decedent. A dozen or more times now I've had to get a check reissued to the name of the trust, a process that generally goes fairly smoothly.
