What we will require from you

When letting us know about your bereavement, you'll need to have some important documents to hand, such as:

  • Full name and last known address details of the deceased
  • Their Ulster Bank sort code and account number (we only need to see one, even if they had multiple accounts with us)
  • The original death certificate
  • The original will, if one exists. Please note that proof of ID and Address of all executor(s) will be required before we can close the accounts held by the deceased.
  • Your proof of ID and address
  • The final funeral bill
  • If the estate is over €31,000 a Grant of Probate/Letters of Administration will be required before we can close the accounts held by the deceased.
