Receipt and giving of acquittance and discharge for payment by minors.

(a) Any minor domiciled in this state who has attained the age of 18 years shall be deemed competent to receive and to give full acquittance and discharge for a payment, or payments, in aggregate amount not exceeding $3,000.00 in any one year, made by a life insurer under the maturity, death, or settlement agreement provisions in effect or elected by such minor under a life insurance policy or annuity contract, provided such policy, contract, or agreement shall provide for the payment, or payments, to such minor and if, prior to such payment, the insurer has not received written notice of the appointment of a duly qualified guardian of the property of such minor. No such minor shall be deemed competent to alienate the right to, or to anticipate, such payments. This section shall not be deemed to restrict the rights of minors set forth in Section 27-14-5.

(b) This section shall not be deemed to require any insurer to determine whether any other insurer may be effecting a similar payment to the same minor.
