Part 3: UNIFORM TRANSFER ON DEATH SECURITY REGISTRATION ACT HEADING: PL 1997, C. 627, §1 (NEW)
§6-311. Terms, conditions and forms for registration
A registering entity offering to accept registrations in beneficiary form may establish the terms and conditions under which
it receives requests for registrations in beneficiary form and for implementation of registrations in beneficiary form, including
requests for cancellation of previously registered TOD beneficiary designations and requests for reregistration to effect
a change of beneficiary. The terms and conditions so established may provide for proving death, avoiding or resolving any
problems concerning fractional shares, designating primary and contingent beneficiaries and substituting a named beneficiary's
descendants to take in the place of the named beneficiary in the event of the beneficiary's death. Substitution may be indicated
by appending to the name of the primary beneficiary the letters PCEG, standing for "per capita at each generation." This
designation substitutes a deceased beneficiary's descendants who survive the owner for a beneficiary who fails to so survive,
the descendants to be identified and to share in accordance with the law of the beneficiary's domicile at the owner's death
governing inheritance by descendants of an intestate. Other forms of identifying beneficiaries who are to take on one or
more contingencies, and rules for providing proofs and assurances needed to satisfy reasonable concerns by registering entities
regarding conditions and identities relevant to accurate implementation of registrations in beneficiary form, may be contained
in a registering entity's terms and conditions.
