§1492.  Accounts and deposits

The administrator shall maintain within the fund three separate accounts:  (1) a clearing account, (2) an unemployment trust fund account, and (3) a benefit account.  All moneys payable to the fund, upon receipt thereof by the administrator, shall be immediately deposited in the clearing account.  All moneys in the clearing account after clearance thereof, shall, except as herein otherwise provided, be deposited immediately with the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States of America to the credit of the account of this state in the unemployment trust fund, established and maintained pursuant to Section 904 of the Social Security Act, as amended, any provisions of law in this state relating to the deposit, administration, release, or disbursement of moneys in the possession or custody of this State to the contrary notwithstanding.  Refunds payable pursuant to R.S. 23:1551 and R.S. 23:1472(12) F(V), may be paid from the clearing account or the benefit account.  The benefit account shall consist of all moneys requisitioned from this state's account in the unemployment trust fund in the United States Treasury.  Except as herein otherwise provided, moneys in the clearing and benefit accounts may be deposited in any depository bank in which general funds of the state may be deposited, but no public deposit insurance charge or premium shall be paid out of the fund.  Moneys in the clearing and benefit accounts shall not be commingled with other state funds, but shall be maintained in separate accounts on the books of the depository bank.  Such money shall be secured by the depository bank to the same extent and in the same manner as required by the general depository law of this state; and collateral pledged for this purpose shall be kept separate and distinct from any collateral pledged to secure other funds of the state.  The administrator shall give a bond conditioned upon the faithful performance of his duties with respect to the fund in an amount not to exceed $25,000.  The bond shall be approved by the Attorney General of this state.  All sums recovered for losses sustained by the fund shall be deposited therein.
