*Bylaw 8.7: Assignment And Gift By Failure To Claim. Notwithstanding any other provisions of the Bylaws or other provision of the membership certificate, if any member or former member fails to claim any cash retirement, capital credits, or other payment from the Cooperative within three years after payment of the same has been available to him/her by notice or check mailed to him/her at the last address furnished by him/her to the Cooperative, such failure shall be and constitutes an irrevocable assignment and gift by such member or former member of such capital credit or other payment to the Cooperative. Failure to claim any such payment within the meaning of the section shall include the failure of such member or former member to cash any check mailed to him/her by the Cooperative at the last address furnished by him/her to the Cooperative. The assignment and gift provided under this section shall become effective only upon the expiration of three years from the date when such payment was made available to such member or former member and after sixty (60) days notice by publication. Notice by publication is given by one insertion in a newspaper circulated in the service area of the Cooperative listing the names of those who for three years have failed to claim the credit or other payment.
