17:12B-78. Limitation upon accounts
No savings member shall hold an account or accounts in any one State association with an aggregate participation value exceeding $20,000.00 or 1% of the capital of the State association, whichever is greater; provided, however, that such limitation shall not apply to--
(a) An account or deposit held as provided in section 80 or section 241 of this act; or
(b) An account or deposit which is pledged as security for the repayment of money due such State association; or
(c) An installment share account, or any account opened as the result of the maturity of an installment share account; or
(d) An account, or deposit other than an installment share account, which exceeds the aforesaid limitation at the time of the enactment of this statute, but no additions other than dividends or interest shall be made thereto; or
(e) Where such excess results from the addition of dividends or interest to any such account, or from the acquisition of an account by gift, will or inheritance; or from the acquisition of an account or deposit previously held as collateral security for the payment of an obligation; or from the acquisition by one State association of the assets of another association; or
(f) Where such excess results from a reduction in the capital of the association.
The board may provide for any lesser limitation than set forth in this section, and any person or persons authorized by it, may refuse to accept any account and may limit the amount of payments which may be received on any account.
