17:13-110. Merger of credit unions
a. Any credit union may, with the approval of the commissioner, merge with another credit union under the existing charter of the continuing credit union, pursuant to any plan agreed upon by the majority of the board of each credit union joining in the merger, approved by the affirmative vote of a majority of the members of the merging credit union present at a meeting of its members duly called for that purpose, and consented to by any government agency or other organization insuring the accounts of the credit union.
b. The commissioner may approve a merger according to the plan agreed upon by the majority of the board of each credit union even if approved by less than a majority of the entire membership, if he finds upon the written and verified application filed by the board that:
(1) Notice of the meeting called to consider the merger was mailed to each member entitled to vote upon the question;
(2) The notice disclosed the purpose of the meeting and properly informed the membership that approval of the merger might be sought pursuant to this section; and
(3) A majority of the votes cast upon the question were in favor of the merger.
c. After agreement by the board and approval by the members of the merging credit union, the chairman and secretary of the credit union shall execute a Certificate of Merger, which shall set forth all of the following:
(1) The time and place of the meeting of the board at which the plan was agreed upon;
(2) The vote in favor of the adoption of the plan;
(3) A copy of the resolution or other action by which the plan was agreed upon;
(4) The time and place of the meeting of the members at which the plan agreed upon was approved; and
(5) The vote by which the plan was approved by the members.
d. The certificate and a copy of the plan of merger agreed upon shall not become effective until approved by the commissioner. If the commissioner has not notified the credit union of his action within sixty days of receipt, the merger shall be deemed to be approved. Upon the commissioner's approval, the Certificate of Merger shall be filed with the department.
e. Upon filing of the Certificate of Merger with the department, all property, property rights, and members' interest of the merged credit union shall vest in the surviving credit union, without deed, endorsement, or other instrument of transfer, and all debts, obligations and liabilities of the merged credit union shall remain in effect;
f. This section shall be construed, whenever possible, to permit a credit union organized under any other act to merge with one incorporated under this act, or to permit one incorporated under this act to merge with one organized under any other act.
