  • § 2525. Relationship between licensee and authorized delegate

    (a) In this subchapter, “remit” means to make direct payments of money to a licensee or its representative authorized to receive the money, or to deposit money in a depository institution within the meaning of subdivision 11101(24) of this title, in an account specified by the licensee.

    (b) A contract between a licensee and an authorized delegate shall require the authorized delegate to operate in full compliance with this chapter. The licensee shall furnish in a record to each authorized delegate policies and procedures sufficient to permit compliance with this chapter.

    (c) An authorized delegate shall remit all money owing to the licensee in accordance with the terms of the contract between the licensee and the authorized delegate.

    (d) If a license is suspended, revoked, or nonrenewed, the Commissioner shall notify all authorized delegates of the licensee whose names are in a record filed with the Commissioner of the suspension, revocation, or nonrenewal. After notice is sent or publication is made, an authorized delegate shall immediately cease to provide money services as a delegate of the licensee.

    (e) An authorized delegate may not provide money services outside the scope of activity permissible under the contract between the authorized delegate and the licensee, except for activity in which the authorized delegate is otherwise licensed or authorized to engage.

    (f) An authorized delegate of a licensee holds in trust for the benefit of the licensee all money less fees earned from money transmission.

    (g) A person shall not provide money services on behalf of a person not licensed under this chapter. A person that engages in any money services activity under this chapter shall be subject to the provisions of this chapter to the same extent as if the person were a licensee under this chapter.

    (h) A person may not be an authorized delegate of another authorized delegate. An authorized delegate must enter into a contract directly with a licensee. (Added 2001, No. 55, § 1, eff. Jan. 1, 2002; amended 2009, No. 134 (Adj. Sess.), § 22.)
