Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Unfortunately, most credit card / bank's cash back programs only valid while primary card holder is alive and in the account in good standing and an authorized used of the account would not be entitled to any cash back benefits or use of the account where deceased spouse was primary account holder and unfortunately, because banks have the right to establish their own rules when it comes to the cash back / rewards programs, there would generally not be any legal recourse in a similar case.
I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.
I wish you the best of luck and God bless you!
