Your accountholder passed away and the family is grieving. Yet, in the midst of remembering and honoring a life, the legal and compliance clock is ticking. In most states, checks can only be paid for 10 days after the date of death.

When your depositor dies, many issues and questions arise. Who can have account information? Who owns the account? Can the account be accessed? What happens with powers of attorney and authorized signers? Can the spouse of a sole proprietor continue to access the account? What about that last tax refund check? Is the account still insured? Can a check be written to a funeral home? What about the checks coming in to pay funeral expenses? Learn about checks, IRAs, deposit ownership, trusts, UTMA, affidavits of heirship, and other complex issues that can occur when a depositor dies.
