Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas:

all payments made under such agreement, contract or plan, and any earn-
ings or interest thereon, shall remain with such bank, credit union or
savings and loan association until the death of the person for whose serv-
ice the funds were paid or, except as provided in subsection (c), until
demand for payment is made by the purchaser of the merchandise or
services to the bank, credit union or savings and loan association, and
upon such payment to the purchaser, the contract shall terminate.

    (b) At the option of a purchaser, any installment contract may provide
for additional payments by the purchaser for the cost of group credit life

shall be treated as funds in accordance with K.S.A. 16-304, and amend-
ments thereto.

any and set aside at the direction of the purchaser. Any interest and
earnings accumulated under the agreement, contract or plan may also be
irrevocable. This option shall not prohibit the purchaser to designate a
different funeral home at any time prior to death, after written notice to
the current funeral home, and upon such notification all documents and
funds shall be transferred as necessary.

    Sec. 2. K.S.A. 16-303 is hereby repealed.
