What happens to scheduled direct debits or any recurring payments linked to a bank account(s) after the account holder has passed away?
No debits will be permitted once a hold has been placed on the account. We will provide you with a list of all recurring payments and direct debits for each deposit account(s). This list will be mailed to the authorised person or Next of Kin for the Estate. We will also assist you with handling any direct debits on the account however, you can also contact the merchant. For any recurring payments on the account, the authorised party will need to contact the providers to make alternative arrangements (this includes cancelling the authority on any regular debit transactions.)
