The property of a system, the portion of wages or salary of an employee

from taxation and from the operation of any law relating to bankruptcy
or insolvency, except as provided in section four thousand six hundred

(b) No trust created pursuant to this article shall be deemed invalid
as violating any existing laws against perpetuities or suspension of the
power of alienation of title to property; and the income arising from
any property, real or personal, held in such trust may be permitted to
accumulate until the fund shall be sufficient in the opinion of its
trustee or trustees to accomplish the purposes of such trust.

(c) Any system may lend money to any of its participating employees or
their children, who are attending or planning to attend college, to
assist them in meeting their expenses of higher education, where such

education law. In such cases no further security for the repayment of
such loans shall be required of the borrowers by such system.
