Section 29: Exemption of savings banks employees retirement association property and funds from taxation, operation of law relating to insolvency, attachment and execution; assignment of rights

Section 29. The property of the association, the portion of the wages or salary of any employee deducted or to be deducted under sections 27 and 28, the right of an employee to an annuity or pension, and all of an employee's rights in the funds of the association, shall be exempt from taxation and from the operation of any law relating to insolvency, and shall not be attached or taken on execution or other process to satisfy any debt or liability of the association, a participating bank, or any employee member of the association. No assignment of any right in or to said funds or of any pension or annuity payable under section 27 shall be valid, except that deferred annuity contracts purchased by a participating bank on account of past service of eligible employees may be assigned to such bank prior to actual retirement.

Nothing in this section shall prevent an employee's annuity or pension from being attached, taken on execution, assigned, or subject to other process to satisfy a support order pursuant to chapter 208, 209 or 273.
