Chapter 370

< > Effective - 07 Mar 1991, see footnote bottom

  370.085.  Membership shares, uses — valuation — withdrawal — redemption — dividends. — 1.  Membership shares may, with the approval of the director of the division of credit unions, be utilized to fulfill required reserves, operating deficiencies, and satisfy the contractual arrangements of share insurers or guarantors.  Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection 3 of section 370.340, payment for such shares, upon demand, may be delayed or withheld without notice, in whole or in part, by order of board of directors or director of division of credit unions to ensure the safe and sound operations of the credit union or to fulfill contractual commitments.  When the value of membership shares is impaired, the board of directors, under the direction of the director of credit unions, shall immediately revalue membership shares in proportion to the change of the aggregate value of such shares.  The value of membership shares so affected shall hold constant until such subsequent time as the financial condition of the credit union causes a revaluation of membership shares to reflect further impairments or the recovery of prior devaluations as determined by the board of directors with the approval of the director of the division of credit unions.

  2.  A member of a credit union desiring to withdraw from the credit union or to redeem membership shares must file a written application with the credit union, in such form and manner as the board of directors may determine, and as the insurer or guarantor may impose as a condition of insurance or guarantee.

  3.  The share balance in the member's membership share account shall be paid to such member only as funds therefor become available and after deducting any amounts due the credit union by the member, including any fees, impaired balance, notes or obligations outstanding, whether mature or unmatured, or other indebtedness or obligation of that member to the credit union.

  4.  The procedures established by the board of directors of the credit union for the redemption or withdrawal of the membership share shall not be amended or varied without the written consent of the director of the division of credit unions.

  5.  The board of directors may authorize dividends, after provision for required reserves, to be paid on membership shares.  A dividend need not be paid on membership shares, but if such a dividend is paid, it may, at the option of the board of directors, be added to the membership share held by each member, and may not be subject to withdrawal until some future time to be determined by the board of directors, or upon termination of membership.
