When you delete a Venmo account, be sure you know what you're doing?
Before you deactivate a Venmo account for a loved one, check the transaction history to determine if there are any recurring payments that might be sent again after the account is closed. (If your loved one had rental properties, for example, it's feasible that tenants use Venmo to paypal rent each month.) If you know the recipients or persons making the payments, you'll need to contact them and inform them that the Venmo account is being cancelled, as well as provide them with alternative payment options (if necessary).
What is the procedure for deleting a Venmo account?
You have a few options when it comes to removing a deceased person's Venmo account. You can remove the Venmo account on the app if you have access to the account log-in details and phone number. The steps are as follows:
1. Log in to the Venmo app review on your phone.
2. Make sure you transfer any current Venmo money to an outside account once you're in the Venmo app.
3. Inside the bottom right corner, click the icon.
4. With in top right hand corner, click the Settings icon.
5. Navigate to Account.
6. Close the Venmo account by clicking the 'Close Venmo Account' button.
When you close your Venmo account, you will no longer be able to send or receive money through the app.
You'll need to contacting Venmo's support team if you will not have access to accounts and wish to delete it. Collect as much of the following information as possible to do so:
· Contact information and email address of the deceased on the account
· Surname in full
· Information about the deceased's relationship to you
· a photocopy of your driver's licence or other government-issued identification
· a certified copy of the deed
· a copy of any legal documents demonstrating your ability to act on behalf of the deceased and their estate
Is it possible to take money out of the account of a deceased person?
Even if you're a beneficiary, taking money from a deceased person's bank account or payment account can result in criminal charges if you're not the executor of the estate. It's best not to take money from a deceased person's accounts unless you're the executor of the estate.
