What bills can be paid from the deceased’s accounts?
Generally, we can only pay for the funeral expenses from the account(s) of the deceased. However, we may approve on a case by case basis additional invoices to be paid from the deceased’s account(s) upon request from the Executor(s) or other Legal Representative(s). Payment will be subject to there being funds available and incurring the expense is necessary to protect the interests of the estate.
For us to consider payment of any other invoices, the invoice must be issued in the name of the deceased, issued around the date of death and can only be paid directly to the provider of the goods or services. We are unable to reimburse for any payment previously paid.
