When a credit card is used by family members or non-authorized parties after a cardholder passes away, it creates a balance for which the deceased signer may not be liable. Many credit card issuers write off these after-date-of-death charges because they are unsure how to recover them, or because they lack the in-house resources to dedicate to probate collections. Weltman’s After Date of Death (ADOD) Program helps you recover these unauthorized charges, while upholding your brand integrity.
Accounts that were placed under our ADOD Program within the first six months of the date-of-death achieved the highest recovery rates, making it critical to identify decedent accounts as quickly as possible. Learn more about our ADOD Program results in this case study
