A. Any person of competent legal capacity may contract for insurance.
B. Any minor not less than fifteen (15) years of age may, notwithstanding his minority, contract for annuities or for insurance upon his own life or health, or on the person of another individual in whom the minor has an insurable interest. Such a minor shall, notwithstanding such minority, be deemed competent to exercise all rights and powers with respect to or under any such contract as might be exercised by an individual of full legal age, and may at any time surrender his interest in any such contract and give valid discharge for any benefit accruing or money payable thereunder. Such a minor shall not, by reason of his minority, be entitled to rescind, avoid or repudiate the contract, nor to rescind, avoid or repudiate any exercise of a right or privilege thereunder, except that such a minor not otherwise emancipated, shall not be bound by any unperformed agreement to pay by promissory note or otherwise, any premium on any such annuity or insurance contract. Any annuity or insurance contract procured by or for a minor under this subsection shall be made payable either to the minor or his estate or to a person having an insurable interest in the minor's life.
