Does the state of Texas require the custodian of a TUTMA account to sign or initial signifying the account is a TUTMA account?

Thanks,

Since the account has to be titled "John Doe as custodian for (name of minor) under the Texas Uniform Transfers to Minors Act", and naturally John Doe has to sign to establish the account, I am not sure what you mean????

rlcarey,

My new account staff has been a little unsettled with our conversion to Deposit Pro, when we used ARTA, the signature card always had sections where the custodian would initial by the type of account they were getting (even though, the account was titled as a TUTMA). Under Deposit Pro there is no place for the custodian to initial, they just sign… I think it is ok just like that but my new accounts officer says this part is required under the state of Texas. I can’ find anything that says that and we have talked to Harland regarding this and they said it is not required… my new account officer called ARTA and they told her it is required.

Thanks,

If they are so sure, then either your new account officer or ARTA needs to provide a citation for this wild goose hunt.

I can say that a lot of things are "required by State law", but without a citation, it is nothing but a lot hot air emanating from my pie hole. smile

Thanks Z, but what does that have to do with requiring someone to initial a signature card indicating the type of account that it might be smile

INOH is talking about a signature requirement in the law. These are the ONLY mentions of signatures in the TUTMA law. There are no other mentions of signatures. So, initialing the signature card indicating the account is a TUTMA account IS NOT required.

INOH, we use DepositPro and in the Account Selection form there should be a place for the custodian to initial - make sure that DepositPro has that form turned on.
