I co-signed a revolving account with my cousin for one certain

This answer was rated:

I co-signed a revolving account with my cousin for one certain item. He recently died. He lived in Ok. and I live in Ga. He never missed a payment and was always on time. In fact, he usually paid more than the required amount due. The interest rate is a whopping 25.99%. In this situation, am I absolutely required to keep making the payments? Is there a way out of this? I cannot afford it. I only agreed because I knew he would not let me down on this account. Neither one of us expected his death would intervene.
Is there any help for me?

Good evening. With regard to the lender, you are still obligated, but you can make a claim against his estate for any and all amounts owed, because it is the deceased who is the primary obligor.



I hope this has given you the guidance you were seeking. I wish you the best of luck!
