What documentation do you require to register a death with PayPal?

To ensure a smooth process, try to have the following information on hand when notifying PayPal of a death:

  • A cover sheet from the executor (or a person who is duly appointed or authorized to administer the estate of the deceased customer) identifying the account by the primary email address, stating that the account holder is deceased and that the executor wishes to have the PayPal account closed.
  • A copy of the death certificate for the account holder.
  • A copy of a government issued photo ID (such as a driver’s license, passport or state-issued ID) of the executor of the estate.
  • Legal documentation or a copy of the will that identifies the executor of the estate.
  • Letter that specifies what to do with any money that remains in the account.

What Happens Next?

Once told of the death, PayPal will take the necessary next steps. Should further information be required of you, they will contact you.
