A society incorporated under this chapter and a society which by election or otherwise is subject to this chapter, may receive deposits of money only from one or more individuals or from a corporation, association, or other organization not organized or operated for profit. A society may use and improve such money for the purposes and according to the direction specified in this chapter. Investments of such money may be made in the same manner as investments of funds by banks organized under the laws of the state; however, except as provided in division (B) of section 1109.47 of the Revised Code, a society shall not invest more than three per cent of its deposits and surplus in the stock, obligations, or other securities of any one issuer. The income or profits from such investments shall be divided among the persons and nonprofit organizations making deposits or their executors, administrators, assigns, and successors in just proportion after such reasonable deductions as may be chargeable on the income or profits. Such deposits may be withdrawn at such times and in such manner as are provided for in the rules of the society, except that no deposit may be withdrawn by check or draft. No society shall carry for any member or depositor any demand, commercial, or checking account. No compensation or profit shall accrue or be paid to members or trustees of the society as such, other than reasonable compensation to trustees for attendance at meetings of the trustees or of committees of the trustees. The society may limit the aggregate amount which any one person may deposit with it, may refuse to receive any deposit, and may at any time return any part of any deposit if the trustees determine to return it.
