  • § 3704. Trust agreements

    A life insurance company chartered by and doing business in this State shall have power and authority to hold in trust or otherwise the proceeds of any life insurance policy or annuity issued by it upon such terms and subject to such conditions and limitations as may be agreed upon in writing by such company and the owner of the policy or the purchaser of the annuity. The contract, policy, or trust instrument may provide that no payments of interest or of principal shall be in any way subject to the claims of the creditors of the person entitled to any part of the proceeds so held or to his or her debts, contracts, or engagements, or to any judicial process to levy upon or attach such proceeds for payment of such claims or demands, and that the person entitled to any of the proceeds so held shall not be permitted to commute, anticipate, encumber, alienate, or assign the same or any part thereof or the interest thereon. Such life insurance company shall not be required to segregate the funds so held but may hold them as a part of its general corporate assets. Nothing in this section or in the trust or other provisions herein contemplated shall subject such life insurance company to the provisions of the law of this State relative to banks or trust companies.
