*All IBMSECU Memberships and Savings accounts are subject to eligibility, address and identification verification, and qualification. The Credit Union does not accept Interest on Lawyer Trust Accounts (IOLTAs), Irrevocable Trusts, Money Service Businesses (MSBs) Qualified Income Trusts (QITs) for Medicaid recipients, or Political Campaign Accounts. Please refer to a current Membership Disclosure, Fee Schedule and Share Account Rate Sheet, or contact a Member Service Advisor at 800.873.5100 or, or visit a branch near you for more details on the rates, terms, penalties, fees and conditions that may apply

**Although the account is maintained in the name of the minor, you, as the custodian, control the account and oversee all activity on the account until the minor reaches age 21, generally, unless your State’s law dictates otherwise, at which time the child has the right to the funds. On the child’s behalf, the custodian makes the decisions about how the money is invested, and when and how to spend it. Contact your professional financial advisor for more information. The custodian must be an IBMSECU Member. Custodial accounts are for the benefit of a minor child, and may not be used as a transactional account for the custodian’s personal finances. Contact a Member Service Advisor for details on the fees, terms and conditions that may apply.
