In today’s competitive environment, financial institutions must develop deposit products that cover a broad spectrum of interests and ages. This session will cover three critical areas for opening minor accounts:

  1. How funds are owned
  2. Proper execution of account-opening documents
  3. How access to the funds should be controlled during the life of the account

Many states have established laws defining the legal ownership of minor accounts, including Uniform Transfers to Minors Act (UTMA) or Uniform Gifts to Minors Act (UGMA) accounts. Although state-specific statutes will not be covered, this session will address key challenges and offer practical solutions for opening minor accounts.
