(1) Claims presented to the department prior to the expiration of the time fixed in the notice to creditors and allowed by it shall be paid in the order of priority fixed in this chapter.
(2) Those filed after that expiration and within 1 year of that expiration are entitled, after they have been allowed by the department, to share in the distribution of the assets of the bank only to the extent of the assets undistributed in the hands of the department and available for the payment of claims of their order of priority at the time the claims are filed. As against other claims of the same order of priority on which dividends have been paid, they are entitled to payment in a proportionate amount before further payments are made on those other claims.
(3) All claims filed after the expiration of 1 year following the date fixed in the notice to creditors as the time for presentation of claims are not entitled to be allowed or paid unless all other creditors' claims of any kind, except claims of shareholders based on stock or assessments paid on stock, have been fully paid and a surplus remains in the hands of the department and then only from that surplus.
