Common Questions and Answers
Do I need the betting account number to use Settld?Ross Caverhill2023-04-18T15:13:48+00:00
This information is not mandatory, but does speed up the process for betting companies if you have it to hand. We do need the deceased’s full name, the registered address on the account, registered email address and their date of birth.
What happens to sole accounts after a death?Ross Caverhill2023-03-29T15:48:56+00:00
For the vast majority of betting providers, sole accounts are closed, once the remaining funds in the account are transferred to the legal next of kin. For the transfer of the final balance, the next of kin’s id and proof of bank statement is mandatory.
What if there is no will – can I still use Settld?Ross Caverhill2023-03-29T15:49:15+00:00
Yes. However, if there is no will, some betting providers will ask a “Next of Kin” to act on behalf of the person who died. Please check who the immediate next of kin should be here, as per the rules of Intestacy.
I want to use Settld on behalf of the next of kin (when there is no will) – is this possible?Ross Caverhill2023-03-29T15:49:32+00:00
Yes. The Settld form will ask for consent from the next of kin. They will be asked to sign a short form, saying that they are happy for you to act on their behalf. Settld will not be able to notify any companies, without this information.
How long will it take for the betting provider to stop sending mail in the name of the person who died?Ross Caverhill2023-03-29T15:49:49+00:00
Most companies take up to 6 weeks to update their systems. Unfortunately, timeframes are set by each organisation, and Settld does not have direct control over this process. Wherever possible, Settld works with companies to provide a better bereavement service, so please let us know if problems persist and we will flag this to the Energy provider for you.
