What happens if the deceased was the primary cardholder on a credit card account?

If the deceased was the primary cardholder for a credit card, any amount outstanding on the credit card becomes a liability of the estate.

Any spending on the account by a secondary cardholder after the date of death will need to be paid in full.

The secondary cardholder will need to apply for a new credit card, in his or her own name, if he or she wishes to continue to have access to a credit card account with the Bank.
