New York Banking Law
Sec. § 111
Profits; Credits to Surplus Fund and to Undivided Profits


In any case where the combined capital stock, surplus fund and undivided profits of a bank or trust company do not equal ten per centum of its net deposit liabilities, the superintendent of financial services may in his or her discretion require such bank or trust company at the close of each accounting period to credit its surplus fund with a portion of its net profits for such period, not to exceed ten per centum thereof, until its combined capital stock, surplus fund and undivided profits equal ten per centum of its net deposit liabilities. For the purposes of this section, the term “net deposit liabilities” shall mean total deposits including all amounts due to national banks, banks, bankers, trust companies and savings banks, the amounts due on certified and cashier’s checks, and for unpaid dividends less the amounts of balances due from national banks, banks, bankers, and trust companies and cash items in process of collection payable immediately upon presentation in the United States.
