Hi everyone,

I am new to stock investing and also new to the list.

I am a US non-resident alien. I am planning to set up a DRIP account as a gift for my daughter for her coming 2nd birthday. I have known that as a custodian, I can manage her account, sell the stock if it does not perform to my expectation but cannot spend any amount outside investing for her.

How will it be if I will die before she reaches her legal age? Will her account be held unattended until she reaches her legal age? How will it be if we both die before her legal age, how can our remaining family claim the account?

Thanks in advance
