TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the banking law, in relation to
authorizing credit unions to conduct savings promotion prize giveaways
Purpose Or General Idea Of Bill:
To authorize banking organizations to establish Prize Linked Savings
accounts to give incentives to customers to save money by giving them
the opportunity to win promotional prizes.
Summary Of Specific Provisions:
Section adds a new § 9-V to the Banking Law to provide that banking
organizations may conduct a savings promotion. This section defines
the following terms:
1."Savings promotion"- means a contest or promotion sponsored by a
banking organization in which a chance of winning designated prizes is
obtained by the deposit of specified amount of money in a saving
account, share account, share certificate, or other savings products
2."Qualifying account" - means a savings account, share account, share
certificate, or other savings product or program offered by a banking
organization through which depositors may obtain chances to win prizes
in a savings promotion by depositing specified sums of money;
3. "Non-qualifying account" - means a savings account, share account,
certificate of deposit, or other savings product or program offered by
a banking organization that is not a qualifying account.
Section 2: amends various sections of the Banking Law to authorize
each banking organization to conduct a savings promotion.
Prize-linked savings programs are accounts that provide the chance to
win prizes simply by saving money. Programs like these have proven to
be successful in several other states and countries, resulting in
higher numbers of new savings accounts and larger amounts saved. By
depositing the requisite minimal monthly amount, depositors are
enrolled in the promotion and are given the chance to win designated
prizes by their financial institution. This greatly benefits not only
the individual, but local and State economies as a whole.
Prior Legislative History:
This is new legislation.
Fiscal Implications For State And Local Governments:
None to the State.
This act will take effect immediately.
