Section: Schedule for payment of fees
a. A credit union may elect to dissolve voluntarily and liquidate its affairs in the manner prescribed in this section.
b. The board shall adopt a resolution recommending the credit union be dissolved voluntarily, and directing that the question of liquidation be submitted to the members.
c. Within 10 days after the board decides to submit the question of liquidation to the members, the chairman shall notify the commissioner and any government agency or other organization insuring member accounts thereof in writing, setting forth the reasons for the proposed liquidation. Within 10 days after the members act on the question of liquidation, the chairman shall notify the commissioner and any government agency or other organization insuring member accounts, in writing, as to the action of the members on the proposal.
d. As soon as the board decides to submit the question of liquidation to the members, payments on shares, share certificates, deposits, deposit certificates, withdrawal of shares, making any transfer of shares to loans and interest, making investments of any kind, and granting loans shall be suspended pending action by members on the proposal to liquidate. On approval by the members of the proposal, all business transactions shall be permanently discontinued. Necessary expenses of operation shall, however, continue to be paid on authorization of the board or liquidating agent during the period of liquidation.
e. For a credit union to enter voluntary liquidation, approval by a majority of the members in writing or by a two-thirds majority of the members present at a regular or special meeting of the members is required. Where authorization for liquidation is to be obtained at a meeting of the members, notice in writing shall be given to each member, by first class mail at least 10 days prior to the meeting.
f. A liquidating credit union shall continue in existence for the purpose of discharging its debts, collecting on loans and distributing its assets, and doing all acts required in order to wind up its business and may sue and be sued for the purpose of enforcing the debts and obligations until its affairs are fully concluded.
g. The board or the liquidating agent shall use the assets of the credit union to pay: (1) expenses incidental to liquidation including any surety bond that may be required; (2) any liability due nonmembers; and (3) deposits and deposit certificates as provided in this act. Assets then remaining shall be distributed to the members proportionately to the shares held by each member as of the date dissolution was voted.
h. As soon as the board or the liquidating agent determines that all assets from which there is a reasonable expectancy of realization have been liquidated and distributed as set forth in this section, they shall execute a Certificate of Dissolution, on a form prescribed by the commissioner, and file the same, together with all pertinent books and records of the liquidating credit union, with the commissioner, whereupon the credit union shall be dissolved.
