ESTATE HANDLING

Klik her for dansk.

If you have lost one of your loved ones, you can get help and guidance for the financial issues that arise. We know that there may be many questions about a death at such a difficult time. We have therefore tried to cover the most common topics about finance, rights, and opportunities here.

We will send a statement of deceased accounts and any deposits per day of death shortly after we are informed about the customers death. If you were married to a deceased, you may need a corresponding statement of your own accounts and any depots. You will get it by filling out the web form below.


Before we can help you, we need the following documentation:
- Probate certificate
- If any, power of attorney
- Legitimation

Legitimization of heirs
To be sure that we settle the estate, we need to use photographic identification on all mandate holders and heirs in private estates. If an heir is an existing Danske Bank customer and already provided sufficient legitimacy in the past, you are not required to re-submit this documentation. If you are any doubt please call us on the number at the foot of this page.

Please note that unfortunately we can not handle the estate until we have received legitimation from all heirs and if applicable mandate holder(s).

What legitimation do we require?
You must provide two-pieces of identification:

A copy of health card as well as passport, driving license or identity card issued by Borgerservice.

Alternatively, you can send copies of at least two of the following documents: Danish health card, baptism or name certificate, your latest advance or annual report from SKAT.

Please ensure all papers are valid, copies are clear and that there are no amendments to the originals.

Here's how you do it
You can send the copies to us by filling out the web form below.
