    (1) Prior to return of all or part of the initial capital reserve, the institution shall obtain the Commissioner’s approval for such return.

    (3) Upon release and return, the contributor’s proportionate share of the amount to be returned shall be credited in his or her name to a share account or deposit in such institution, and the contributor shall then be entitled to all rights and privileges, and shall be subject to all duties and liabilities, connected with such share account or deposit.

    (4) In the event of the liquidation of an institution before such contributions have been repaid in full, any portion of such contributions not required for the repayment of the expenses and the payment of creditors and other depositors in full, pursuant to chapter 209, subchapter 3 of this title, may be repaid pro rata to the capital depositors.
