Your Chase Bank account might be where you keep your savings, manage your investments, or conduct daily transactions. But have you ever considered what happens to your Chase Bank account when you die?

Understanding the significance of this question, Chase provides two primary options to manage your account after your death: transferring the account to a beneficiary or closing the account.

Transferring Account

With Chase’s beneficiary services, you can designate a beneficiary who will inherit the account upon your death. This is a seamless way to ensure that your hard-earned money goes directly to the person you wish to support.

Account Closure

If you prefer, you can instruct for the account to be closed upon your death. The funds will then become part of your estate and will be distributed according to your will or state law.

While these options offer a level of control over your financial legacy, they require thoughtful planning and communication with your loved ones. This is where Snug comes in.

At Snug, we specialize in helping you create comprehensive estate plans and organize all of life's details in one secure place. Our platform assists you in setting up a transfer of account or account closure upon your death. We ensure your wishes are clearly communicated, providing peace of mind for your loved ones.
