Here are all the consumer disclosures you will receive during the new account opening process:
*Joint Ownership allows all owners to perform deposits, withdraws, transfers and the ability to close products (however, only the Primary can close the account in full). Each owner will have full and equal authority to access all funds, regardless of where the funds originated. No owner can remove another owner from the account, they can only remove themselves. The account includes right of survivorship, meaning if one owner passes away, the funds are split among the remaining account owners, regardless of what the deceased owner's Will states. This account also includes rights of setoff, which means funds in this account can be used towards any and all obligations, liability or debt owed by any owner on the account, regardless of where the funds originated from. Please see the following article for more information Joint Ownership vs. Power of Attorney.
