**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.
