For your information: The deceased´s accounts can´t be continued under the name of the deceased person. Therefore, after receiving the initial notification, we will send you the forms required for an account change or account closure and, if necessary, request any missing documents.

Please note that the processing of the estate takes about four weeks.

In order to simplify the processing of the estate, we ask you in the case of an estate to submit the following documents (if they are already available to you).

Joint Account

Documents to be submitted by the co-accountholder:

  • Original or officially certified copy of the death certificate
  • Account Switching Form or Account Closing Request Form
  • If necessary, current proof of identity (if your proof of identity has already expired)
  • If necessary, exemption order

Individual Accounts    

Documents to be submitted by the heir(s):

  • Original or officially certified copy of the death certificate
  • Original or officially certified copy of the opened will or certificate of inheritance
  • Current legitimisation of all heirs
  • Account Switching Form or Account Closing Request Form
  • If necessary, exemption order

Important legal information and footnotes:

  • Individual accounts are blocked until the estate is settled.
  • Please note that the current exemption orders end with the death of the deceased.
  • Current Time Deposits can be rewritten to the heir(s). If you want to cancel the term deposits early, then please note our Special Terms and Conditions Classic Savings / Online Savings.
  • The Deniz-Sparplan cannot be continued by the heirs. See the special conditions “Deniz-Sparplan”.
  • Legitimization can be done via the POSTIDENT (post-identification) procedure or by submitting certified copy of ID card. The POSTIDENT-Coupon can be downloaded at https://www.denizbank.de/de/kundenservice/dokumente/ or sent to us per post.
  • If the heir already has an account in our house, an informal order is sufficient to have the deceased’s account rewritten to the heir´s current account.
  • In the case of an existing and valid power of attorney, the submission of the opened will or certificate of heirship is no longer required.
  • We are happy to accept certifications issued by our branches or your bank.
  • If you do not have an account in our bank and wish a rewriting , you can open the account via our Homepage here or on site in one of our 16 branches and inform us in written form about the subsequent transfer of the estate via your newly opened account.
