(a)

is payable by a person who is a holder under section 5 to the person who is entitled to the money (the owner); and

(b)

meets the requirements of subsection (2) or (7); and

is held by a person who—

(i)

is not the Commissioner; or

(ii)

is the Commissioner and has not delisted the money under section 11(6).

Money meets the requirements of this subsection if—

(a)

the obligation of the holder to pay the money to the owner arises under an agreement, arrangement, or situation described in subsection (4); and

(b)

the money is not excluded from meeting the requirements of this subsection by subsection (5); and

for money to which a renewing-term arrangement described in subsection (6)(b) applies, the owner during a period of 5 years beginning on or after the end of the first fixed period and ending with the end of the second or a later fixed period does not request information from, and does not provide instructions or information to, the holder, whether about the money or about another matter; or

(b)

the holder chooses to pay the money to the Commissioner as unclaimed money and satisfies the requirements of section 5B.

(4)

For the purposes of subsection (2), money payable by a holder to an owner may be unclaimed money if the obligation arises under 1 or more of—

(c)

an agreement, arrangement, or situation that gives rise to an obligation under law or equity of the holder to make a payment to the owner.

(5)

Money payable by a holder to an owner does not meet the requirements of subsection (2) if the money is payable—

an arrangement that applies to money is a single-term arrangement if, under the arrangement, the money becomes due for payment on the date of a demand by the owner, or on a specified date or on the date of the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event, and remains due after that date until paid to the owner:

(b)

an arrangement that applies to money is a renewing-term arrangement if, under the arrangement, the money—

(i)

becomes due for payment after a fixed period if the owner near the end of the fixed period requests repayment; and

(ii)

is treated as being paid by the holder to the owner and then by the owner to the holder for a further fixed period if the owner does not request repayment as described in subparagraph (i).
