An UTMA is an irrevocable account which is managed by a Custodian. The Custodian authorizes all deposit and withdrawal transactions to the account(s) and is legally bound to manage the funds in the UTMA account. A minor may have several UTMA accounts established for him/her but these must be managed by only one Custodian. While a Custodian may be any adult, it is recommended that a parent or legal guardian only to act as Custodian for the minor. Exceptions may be handled on a case-by-case basis. Contact a Credit Union representative for details.

Revocable Living Trust

A Revocable Living Trust is a type of savings account established to prevent your estate from going to probate court upon your death. Ownership of the account is changed from an "individual" owner to that of an "entity." That is, your assets are essentially renamed and put in the name of the Trust. The entity or "Trust" becomes the account holder and as such may take advantage of any other products or services available to an individual account holder. Trust funds are controlled by the named trustee or trustees. You must go through an attorney to set up a Trust account. All trustees must be eligible for Credit Union membership in their own right. All assets defined by you must be converted to the Trust.
