Your Visa card may be a constant companion for shopping, dining, or managing your finances. But have you ever stopped to think about what happens to your Visa card when you die?

Visa understands the importance of this question and provides two main options for handling your account after your death: transferring the account to a beneficiary or account closure.

Transferring Account

Visa allows you to designate a beneficiary who will take over the account upon your death. This can be a smooth way to manage your financial legacy and ensure that your assets are used as you wish.

Account Closure

If you prefer, you can instruct Visa to close the account upon your death. Any remaining balance will then become part of your estate and will be distributed according to your will or state law.

While these options offer some control over your financial legacy, they require careful planning and communication with your loved ones. This is where Snug can assist.

At Snug, we believe in providing a comprehensive solution to estate planning and organizing all of life's details in one secure place. Our platform helps you set 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.

But Snug is more than just managing your Visa account after your death. We offer a holistic approach to estate planning, helping you manage your digital assets, financial matters, and end-of-life wishes in an easy-to-navigate and secure platform.

Our services include:

  1. Digital Estate Planning: We help you catalogue your digital footprint, including credit card accounts, social media, and online banking, and decide what happens to them after your death.
  2. Document Storage: Securely store important documents such as wills, trusts, and insurance policies on our platform.
  3. End-of-Life Planning: Record your preferences for funeral arrangements, organ donation, and other end-of-life decisions.

In a world where financial and digital assets play an increasingly important role, it's essential to plan for your Visa account after death. Snug allows you to address this need with confidence, ensuring your financial legacy is managed according to your wishes and providing a sense of peace to your loved ones.

Snug is more than just planning for death; it's about celebrating life and ensuring that your legacy lives on, both in the hearts of your loved ones and the financial realm.
