Checking Accounts are not permitted with local Surrogate Court orders but may be permitted with a Supreme Court order if it is stated in the order. Accounts are not to exceed FDIC insurance ($250,000). Court orders usually express how the money is to be invested (i.e. savings, CD, etc.). Court-Ordered Guardianship Accounts are not permitted to have Overdraft. Other restrictions and conditions may apply.
