Ironically, when a financial institution learns a deposit or loan customer has died, confusion and dread seem to be the normal reaction. We’ll walk you through the best practices when dealing with a customer’s death – both on the deposit side and the loan side, as well as unique issues that can arise when doing business with the decedent’s estate.
