Except as otherwise expressly provided in this article, an association or federal association may issue savings accounts to any married person or minor as the sole and absolute owner of the account, and receive payments by or for the owner, and pay withdrawals, accept pledges to the association, and act in any other manner with respect to the accounts on the order of a married person or minor.

Any payment or delivery of rights to a married person, to any minor, or to a trust established by or for a married person, or a minor, or a receipt or acquittance signed by a married person or by a minor who holds a savings account, shall be a sufficient release of the association or federal association for any payment made or delivery of rights to the married person or minor.

6752.
  

(a) In the case of a minor, the receipt, acquittance, pledge, or other action required by the association or federal association to be taken by the minor shall be binding upon the minor with like effect as if the minor were of full age and legal capacity.

(b) Except under subdivision (c), the parent or guardian of the minor shall not have the power to attach or transfer any savings account issued to or in the name of the minor, provided that a parent or guardian of a minor aged 13 or less may require, by written notice delivered to the office where the account is maintained, that the signatures of both the minor and the parent or guardian be required for withdrawals from the account.

(c) In the event of the death of a minor the receipt or acquittance of either parent, guardian, or foster parent of the minor is a sufficient discharge of the association or federal association for any sums not exceeding in the aggregate two thousand five hundred dollars ($2,500) unless the minor has given written notice to the association or federal association to accept the signature of the parent, guardian or foster parent to withdraw a greater amount.

(Amended by Stats. 1984, Ch. 958, Sec. 4.)
