Cancel or Transfer Accounts, Memberships and Subscriptions.
6. Cancel or Transfer Accounts, Memberships and Subscriptions
Following someone’s death, you don’t want subscriptions, memberships or services they’ll no longer be using to stay valid. Be sure to cancel credit card, insurance and financial accounts that will be inactive. “If the person was married, transfer the power, electricity and water bills that may be in their name to their surviving spouse.
Also some states, such as Florida, enforce home ownership to be transferred into the name of a living spouse in order for things like title insurance to remain intact.
Since every state has different mandates, don’t forget to check what type of legal filings, if any, are necessary in the state in which a family member has died, as well as any state where the individual owned property.
