Deceased Estates

If you've recently suffered a loss, we understand that it can be a very difficult time. There are lots of things to sort out, such as the financial affairs of the person who has died - this is what we refer to as Deceased Estates Management.

At Westpac we have a dedicated Deceased Estates Management Team available to help you through the process of settling the financial affairs of a Westpac customer who's passed away. Our aim is to help remove the complications and make this experience as supportive and helpful as possible.

While it's not essential to deal with an Estate immediately after the person has died, we recommend that you let the bank know of the event as soon as possible. Then once you're ready, you can get back in touch with our team to start the Deceased Estates Management process.
