Banking before the estate inventory is completed
You can pay invoices addressed to the deceased person or their estate before the estate inventory is completed. For this, we do not need an extract from the Population Information System for the deceased person.
The invoices can also be paid by someone who is not a party to the death estate as soon as you have notified us of the death.
Before the estate inventory is completed, any party to the estate may do the following:
- pay the estate’s invoices
- take inventory of a deposit box
- stop any direct debits
- get information on the deceased’s accounts and services for the date of death and the subsequent period.
Please provide us with a copy of the report on the deceased’s family relationships, which you can order from their local parish or the Digital and Population Data Services Agency. We need this to confirm that you are a party to the estate. If you are a universal beneficiary, a copy of the will proves that you are a party to the estate. Please note that you don’t need the report on the deceased’s family relationships to pay the estate’s bills.
The easiest way to deliver the report on the deceased’s family relationships to us is to use our digital Omaposti mailbox service. Select “Estate documents” as the subject of your message.
