Without qualifying any other statutory right to set-off or lien and subject to any
contractual provision, if a party to a multiple-party account is indebted to a financial
institution, the financial institution has a right to set-off against the account
in which the party has or had immediately before the party's death a present right
of withdrawal. The amount of the account subject to set-off is the deceased party's net contribution
to the account, and in the absence of proof of net contributions, to an equal share
with all parties having present rights of withdrawal.
