3-12C-902. Payment or delivery to minors.

Any payment of any benefit to a minor pursuant to the provisions of this chapter shall be made on the minor's behalf to a custodian or conservator appointed by law. However, if no custodian or conservator is appointed and the amount payable does not exceed ten thousand dollars each calendar year, payment shall be made to any parent having the care and custody of the minor and with whom the minor resides.

If the child is eighteen years of age or older, the benefit is payable directly to the child. If any payment exceeds ten thousand dollars in a calendar year, payment must be made on the minor’s behalf to a custodian or conservator appointed by law.
