If you don't control when and how you spend the money, then it might not be yours to rely on as far as Amex is concerned. A trustee might approve a $45k distribution for tuition and basic expenses, but not that same $45k for a nice vehicle. If you bought a $45k car on a PRG and the trustee refused to give you the money when you needed to pay Amex, then Amex would have a problem.
For whatever value it has, my online Amex profile reflects my stated income, but not my stated assets. Amex has never verified either, and I have complete control over my assets.
As to whether/when/where the trust income should appear on your personal tax return, I am not going to get into that. Trusts can be really complicated, and you should speak to the trust attorney or someone else who has read and understands the trust documents.
