Payback on death.

By: pamfletch | 11-03-2016 13:07

At the moment when a member passes away payback is lost, I think it would be a nice gesture on giffgaff's part if the bereaved spouse/ long term partner or their families could inherit on the member's passing.

If this has already been posted it shows many people would like to see this happen.

I believe if the member has used SIM in previous three months to payout date, and chosen payout option already, it will be paid out! It would then be part of the estate. Not quite sure of official stance, as to exactly what happens, but it is possible this already happens in limited circumstances, when heir has access to the account of the deceased.

Seems a nice idea

I like this idea. It would probably need to be done in same was as any other assets are inherited... The executor or administrator (depending on if left a will or died intestate) once they have letter of administration can send in death certificate to Giffgaff. They would also need to send a certified copy of letter of administration etc from the High Court (which proves they have the authority to collect and deal with assets). Giffgaff then pay assets of deceased's account to administrator or executor of deceased's estate. Once probate is finished, executor or administrator pays out all assets to those that legally inherit the estate. It could work but depends if Giffgaff would be prepared to undertake the extra work.

I hope Giffgaff can go ahead with this idea. Many members of Giffgaff aren't rich and any additional assets to the deceased's estate could help out their partners and families at a really difficult and very expensive time. By the way if a person's estate is worth less than 5k (it was last time I looked) probate and therefore letters of administration or executors are not required but next of kin can deal with it. In which case, they would need to provide proof of such ie marriage certificate, birth certificate. Hope that helps.
