A lifetime of careful saving and smart investing, all reflected in the balance sheets of your Citi Bank account. The funds you’ve gathered, the accounts you’ve managed, all contribute to your financial legacy. But what happens to your Citi Bank accounts when you pass away?
As a global banking institution, Citi Bank has procedures in place to handle the accounts of deceased customers. Primarily, the options are Account Closure or Transfer of Ownership.
Upon the death of a Citi Bank account holder, a family member or legal representative can contact Citi Bank to inform them of the death. After necessary verifications, the bank will close the account and release the funds to the legal heir or as directed by a will.
Transfer of Ownership
If you have a joint account or have nominated someone, the ownership of the account will be transferred to the surviving account holder or the nominee after your death.
While these procedures are straightforward, they require proactive planning and clear communication with your loved ones. This is where Snug can assist.
