Your Venmo account is a digital wallet, a convenient tool for transactions and a chronicle of your financial interactions. But have you ever thought about what happens to your Venmo account when you die?

Venmo, recognizing the necessity to address this digital legacy, has a straightforward process for managing your account after death: Account Deactivation.

Account Deactivation

Venmo's policy allows an immediate family member or executor to request the deactivation of your account after your death. This ensures that your transaction history and personal information are removed from Venmo, leaving no digital trace of your account.

Fund Transfer

Unlike some platforms, Venmo does not currently offer a memorialization option or allow access to your funds after your death, unless specified in a will or similar legal document. Once an account is deactivated, it cannot be accessed or used to retrieve any remaining balance.

While Venmo provides a way to manage your account after your death, it requires careful planning and communication with your family members or executor. This is where Snug steps in.

At Snug, we understand the importance of managing your digital legacy. Our platform helps you plan account deactivation after your demise. We ensure that your wishes are communicated clearly, thus reducing potential confusion and distress for your loved ones.

But Snug is more than just managing your Venmo afterlife. We offer a comprehensive solution to estate planning, aiding you to manage your digital assets, financial matters, and end-of-life wishes in a user-friendly and secure platform.
