524.6-209 FINANCIAL INSTITUTION PROTECTION; PAYMENT AFTER DEATH OR DISABILITY; JOINT ACCOUNT.

Any sums in a joint account may be paid, on request, to any party without regard to whether any other party is incapacitated or deceased at the time the payment is demanded; but payment may not be made to the personal representative or heirs of a deceased party unless proofs of death are presented to the financial institution showing that the decedent was the last surviving party or unless there is no right of survivorship under section 524.6-204, or unless a will provides other distribution; in which case the procedure set forth in section 524.6-204, clause (d), shall be followed. A minor may be a party to a joint account.
