Who Has Access To A Safe-Deposit Box?

Next » « Previous


Only the people you designate in writing with the bank or other institution have access to your safe deposit box while you are alive.

Consider adding a friend or family member as co-signer or deputy so the contents of the box can be accessed when needed - especially if you become incapacitated or travel. 

The situation changes after the bank or other institution is notified of the death of a renter. See the next section.
