Can the funeral be paid for from the deceased's bank accounts?
Prior to receiving the required closing documents, we will very likely be able to release funds held in the deceased person's bank accounts to pay the funeral bill. You will need to provide us with the death certificate and the funeral bill. If you would like to be reimbursed for funeral costs that you have already paid for, we'll need the death certificate, the funeral bill and proof of your payment (for example a receipt and a bank statement showing payment). Please note that while we can release funds for the funeral bill, we will be unable to release funds for costs relating to the funeral (i.e. an expensive monument, a wake or travel costs for relatives to attend the funeral).
