How To Access Coinbase Account For Deceased Family Member

Mar-15 2022

The need to access the Coinbase account of a loved one can be unexpected such as after inheriting an account. We've made the process a bit simpler by breaking it down into the steps below.

If you're doing it for your own account then of course log in ahead of time. But if you're doing it for someone else - maybe they've passed away or become incapacitated - then you might need to tackle it without a login or password.

Remember: GoodTrust can help you take any of these actions and save you the time, stress and hassle. Check out our Digital Executor feature to learn more.
