I have questions on FBO accounts (Mr.X FBO Ms.Y). How valid are they and should they even be opened? Can you explain their legal structure, FDIC insurance applicability for Mr.X or Ms.Y, and how to address levies/garnishments against Mr.X or Ms.Y?
Recently, CPAs and attorneys have been recommending that customers open accounts entitled "Wage Account" or "Wage and Compensation Account."
