Text Search


Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

13-63-20Interest in account not subject to levy, judgment or garnishment--Not deemed asset--Interest not to be used as security--Inclusion as gross asset.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any amount in or credited to any account is exempt from and is not susceptible to any levy, execution or judgment, or other operation of law, garnishment, or other judicial enforcement. Amounts in an account are not an asset or property of the account owner, contributor, or designated beneficiary for the purposes of paying any debt or liability of any account owner, contributor, or designated beneficiary. No account is subject to involuntary transfer or alienation. Neither an account owner nor a designated beneficiary may use an interest in an account as security for a loan. Any pledge of an interest in an account is of no force and effect. Amounts in an account may not be included in the gross estate of the account owner or contributor for purposes of state tax law, except to the extent that amounts in an account may be includable in the gross estate of the account owner or contributor for purposes of federal tax law. However, any funds in an account that have been contributed within one year prior to the account owner or contributor filing a petition under any chapter of Title 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code are not exempt by the provisions of this section.
