(a) General rule.--Shares may be issued and payments on subscribed shares received in the name of a minor, or in trust, in such manner as the bylaws may provide.
(b) Transactions with minors.--Whenever shares of a credit union shall be issued in the name of any minor 12 years of age or older, the credit union may pay the dividends or earnings thereon, as well as the withdrawal value of such shares, to such minor without the assent of his parent or guardian. The receipt, acquittance or other action required by the credit union to be taken by the minor shall be binding upon such minor with like effect as if such minor were of full age and shall be a valid release to the credit union. The parent or guardian of such minor shall not, in his capacity as parent or guardian, have the power to attach or in any manner transfer any shares issued to or in the name of such minor.
(c) Transactions with trustees.--Whenever shares of a credit union shall be issued to any person describing himself in subscribing for such shares as trustee for any person or persons, and no other notice of the existence and terms of a valid trust than such description shall have been given to the credit union, the dividends or earnings on such shares, as well as the withdrawal value of such shares, shall, in the event of the death of the person so described as trustee, be paid to the person or persons for whose benefit the shares were stated to have been subscribed if, at the time of payment, such beneficiary is 16 years of age or older. Payment may be made to any such beneficiary who is 16 years of age or older, under the same conditions as if such shares had been originally subscribed for by him. If there are two or more beneficiaries named on any such shares, the credit union shall, in the absence of written notice to the contrary, make payment to such of the beneficiaries as may survive the trustee, in equal portions. The receipt or acquittance of any such beneficiary or beneficiaries for payments made in accordance with this section shall be a full, complete and valid release of the credit union from any further liability for the amounts so paid.
