Under no circumstances may an IRA account be pooled by an institution except in a time deposit administered by the institution which consists entirely of the funds from IRA accounts administered by the institution; nor may an IRA account be pooled by an institution which has both a commercial and a trust department except with other IRA accounts administered by the same department which administers the IRA account.
