There are several ways to establish accounts for minors – each with its own specific requirements. There are accounts established under the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act (UTMA), blocked or court-ordered accounts, informal trust accounts (in trust for), accounts held by a representative payee, and accounts for minors themselves. This webinar is designed to provide the tools you need to establish and maintain these accounts properly, including who can open, transact, and close these accounts.

Account ownership is dictated by state law, but there are many common areas that all financial institutions should know when dealing with minors. From CIP requirements to debit cards – your most frequently asked questions regarding minor accounts will be answered.


  • What types of minor accounts are there?
  • What are the rules for UTMAs and Coverdell ESAs?
  • What is the deposit insurance coverage when minors are owners, co-owners, and beneficiaries?
  • Can UTMA funds be paid directly to the minor at age 21?
  • How old does a minor have to be to open an account?
  • What happens when a minor dies?


  • Minor account type chart
  • Internet resources
  • Employee training log
  • Quiz you can administer to measure staff learning and a separate answer key

Attendance verification for CE credits provided upon request.


This informative session will benefit new account staff; frontline staff; compliance specialists, and those handling decedent accounts.
