(205 ILCS 305/64.5)
Continuation of corporate entity.
(a) For purposes of this Section, a "resulting credit union" means an Illinois-chartered credit union that is the surviving credit union in a merger of 2 or more credit unions, a new credit union resulting from a consolidation of 2 or more credit unions, or a credit union that has effected a conversion from a credit union chartered under the laws of any other state or under the laws of the United States.
(b) A resulting credit union shall be considered the same business and corporate entity as each merging or consolidating credit union or as the converting credit union, with all the property, rights, powers, duties, and obligations of each merging or consolidating credit union or of the converting credit union, except as affected by the charter and bylaws of the resulting credit union. A resulting credit union shall be liable for all liabilities of the merging or consolidating credit union or converting credit union. All the rights, franchises, and interests of the merging or consolidating credit union or converting credit union in and to every species of property, real, personal, and mixed, and choses in action thereunto belonging, shall be deemed to be automatically transferred to and vested in the resulting credit union as a successor-in-interest without any deed or other transfer, and the resulting credit union, without any order or other action on the part of any court or otherwise, shall hold and enjoy the same and all rights of property, franchises, and interests, including appointments, designations, and nominations, and all other rights and interests as trustee, executor, administrator, registrar or transfer agent of stocks and bonds, guardian, assignee, receiver, and in every other fiduciary capacity, in the same manner and to the same extent as was held and enjoyed by the merging or consolidating credit union or the converting credit union. Any reference to a merging, consolidating, or converting credit union in any writing, whether executed or taking effect before or after the merger, consolidation, or conversion, shall be deemed a reference to the resulting credit union if not inconsistent with the other provisions of the writing.
