Credit Union Web Training Webinar:
Opening Accounts for Minors: Compliance, Ownership & Access Issues
Misconceptions about minor accounts may cause confusion and unequal treatment – even from branch to branch. Although account ownership is dictated by state law, some common areas should be understood by all credit unions that offer accounts to minors. Can UTMA funds be paid directly to the minor at age 21? How old must a minor be to open an account? When can a minor have a debit card? From CIP to disbursement on minor accounts, credit union staff must be aware of common problems – and solutions. These issues and many others will be addressed during this valuable presentation.
