Best way to notify banks of a death?
I believe there is a way that I, as an executor, can notify various institutions in one go that someone has died? Can you tell me what it is? DD, WEST MIDLANDS
Many councils operate a free “tell us once” service as a one-stop shop to notify entities such as HM Revenue & Customs, the Department for Work & Pensions and others of a
death. This is often drawn to someone’s attention when they register a death.
Co-op Legal Services owns the Bereavement Advice Centre ( bereavementadvice.org). You can call on 0330 045 0213. It will notify up to 10 financial companies.
A similar free service is financed by UK Finance, the banking trade body, and run by Equiniti. See deathnotificationservice. co.uk or telephone 0333 2076574.
