(a) (1) The receiver of a trust bank or uninsured bank shall, as soon after the receiver's appointment as is practicable, terminate all fiduciary positions the bank holds, surrender all property held by the bank as a fiduciary and settle the fiduciary accounts. With the approval of the Superior Court, the receiver of a trust bank or uninsured bank shall release all segregated and identifiable fiduciary property held by the bank to one or more successor fiduciaries, and may sell one or more fiduciary accounts to one or more successor fiduciaries on terms that appear to be in the best interest of the bank's estate and the persons interested in the property or fiduciary accounts.
(2) Upon the sale or transfer of fiduciary property or a fiduciary account, the successor fiduciary shall be automatically substituted without further action and without any order of any court. Prior to the effective date of substitution of the successor fiduciary, the receiver shall mail notice of such substitution to each person to whom such bank provides periodic reports of fiduciary activity. The notice shall include: (A) The name of such bank, (B) the name of the successor fiduciary, and (C) the effective date of the substitution of the successor fiduciary. The provisions of section 45a-245a shall not apply to the substitution of a fiduciary under this section.
(b) A successor fiduciary shall have all of the rights, powers, duties and obligations of such bank and shall be deemed to be named, nominated or appointed as fiduciary in any will, trust, court order or similar written document or instrument that names, nominates or appoints such bank as fiduciary, whether executed before or after the successor fiduciary is substituted, provided the successor fiduciary shall have no obligations or liabilities under this section for any acts, actions, inactions or events occurring prior to the effective date of the substitution.
(c) If commingled fiduciary money held by the trust bank or uninsured bank as trustee is insufficient to satisfy all fiduciary claims to the commingled money, the receiver shall distribute such money pro rata to all fiduciary claimants of such money based on their proportionate interest.
(d) For the purpose of this section, “successor fiduciary” has the meaning given to that term in section 45a-245a.
