Sample letter to bank for Death of account holder

Sample letter to bank for Death of account holder


This is to notify the bank that my father, (name), had an account in your bank (account number). On (date), he passed away leaving behind me, his elder son, his wife and his daughter. I am writing this letter on behalf of my mother. I request the bank to transfer the amount in my father’s account to my mother’s account which is also in the same bank.

Mother’s name:

Account number:

My father had not mentioned any nominee of his account but since we are the only closest related people to him, I believe transferring the amount to my mother’s account should not be a problem. I have enclosed a copy of his prior to death medical conditions and death certificate.

Please let me know if any other formalities need to be completed for claiming the amount. If required, my mother can meet an officer from your bank in person to approve the same.

I shall be truly grateful to you if the procedure of amount transferring can be done at the earliest since our family is undergoing financial issues after the death of my father.

    This is to inform you that my grandmother, Mrs. Anita Verma W/O Harsh Verma expired on date 24th January. She had a savings account, number 000000000 with your Bank. I am enclosing an attested photo copy of her death certificate for your records.

    Since I, the undersigned, am the nominee of the said savings account, as mentioned therein; I am the legal claimant of the remaining balance in her account after her death. My account details are as follows

    Account Name
    Account Number

    Please endorse this fact in the account ledger of the deceased. I request you to close this account immediately after the balance transfer. Please inform me, what formalities are required to be completed for the procedure to close her account. If required I could come to the bank to complete all the required formalities.

    Your early action will be highly appreciated.
