How do I close or transfer the account of someone who has died?
We understand that in this time of loss you need to manage the affairs of the deceased in a quick and efficient manner. We extend our condolences and our customer care team are here to work with you.
You can choose to either close the account or transfer it into another person's name.
To close the account, simply contact us via email, phone or mail and provide the following information:
- your name and contact details
- the name and account number of the deceased
- your instruction to have the account closed
- the reason for the request
If you have access to any tags on the account, we kindly ask that you return them to our Reply Paid address.
To transfer the account to another person, we require you to mail, email, or fax:
- a completed Account Transfer form, which you can download from our website; and,
- a copy of any document that supports the passing of the original account holder. This can be a copy of the death certificate, death notice, or a letter from the executor
You can provide this information by contacting our customer care team, emailing or mailing Linkt using the appropriate details for your city (details below).
Any billing or direct debit arrangements will be cancelled as soon as we commence processing your request.
