We understand that the loss of a loved one is difficult, and finalising their estate can be complicated. Greater Bank are committed to making this process as simple as possible. The information below may be helpful.

What documentation do we require for Deceased Estates?
  • The original or a certified copy of the Death Certificate
  • If you are noted as an Executor of the Will, the original or a certified copy of the Will or Grant of Probate ( if applicable)
  • If you are an Administrator of the Estate, the original or a certified copy of the Letters of Administration.
  • Your identification eg a current drivers licence, NSW photo card or passport.

What if I need to access some of the funds?
  • The Funeral Account can be drawn from the estate when an invoice for the funeral is produced.
  • Greater Bank will release funds to pay the filing fees for the application of Probate or Letters of Administration. Cheques will be made payable to the Supreme Court ( of the appropriate state)
