A custodial account is officially in the name of the minor. However, as the custodian, you will have complete control of the account. Once the minor reaches 18-21 years old (depending on state law), he or she will have the right to any remaining funds in the account after they have been released by the custodian6.
Before the minor becomes an adult, the custodian may spend funds in the account for educational purposes or any purpose that benefits the minor.
Note: The custodian is also required to be a member of Alliant Credit Union.
