Do you have major questions about minor accounts?

Do you know when and whether the minor can access the account? What are the different account types? How are BSA and CIP woven into the process? What if the minor dies? Join us to learn the answer to these questions and best practices on minor accounts.
  • Differentiate account types for minors
  • Understand how Uniform Transfers to Minors Act accounts operate
  • Describe the requirements for setting up representative payee accounts involving minors
  • Explain how the Bank Secrecy Act customer identification requirements apply to minors
  • Determine whether minors have access to an account and how that may be achieved


There are so many questions regarding minor accounts.  Who can set one up?  When are minors allowed to transact or prohibited from transacting?  What about issuing ATM cards, debit cards, or checks?  This webinar will explore the different types of minor accounts – UTMAs, informal or Totten trusts, accounts for minors with income from sports or entertainment, and more.  In addition, it will tackle some of the stickier issues, such as whether to allow or require an adult as a joint accountholder, who has authority over a UTMA when a custodian dies, considerations for issuing access devices (cards and other EFT services), and what happens if the minor dies.


This informative session is designed for new account representatives, tellers, branch managers, call center representatives, compliance staff, and auditors.
