Access to Late Mother’s Account: Issues with Grant of Probate – November 8th, 2019

Gary O’Sullivan’s mother passed away last year. She was a member of Cahersiveen Credit Union. Gary was her only child and is the main beneficiary of her estate. Howver, an issue has arisen regarding €1,200 in her account that the credit union says it can’t give to him without a grant of probate. Killarney Credit Union, of which Cahersiveen is a part, says it’s bound by the Credit Union Act 1997 when it comes to situations which involve a grant of probate.
