Of course. Banks are not in the habit of giving away money. ANY bills at the time she died are to be paid by her estate. That would be proceeds from life insurance, savings and sale of property. Any money remaining can be disbursed to her heirs.

How many points will your credit score drop by cancelling a credit card. I do not want to pay the annual fee of 95.00?

There is no way of knowing for sure, but if your credit is otherwise solid it shouldn't be by much. If this was your oldest open line of credit, you may see a noticeable drop just because length of credit history figures into the rating. Otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it - it's worth more to avoid a $95/year fee to have the card than it is to keep paying the fee to shore up your rating.

What happens to credit card debt when someone dies in Nevada?

always look into the laws of the state. However, if someone dies it depends on their assets available. The company can sue the estate. You need to notify all of the companies that the deceased did business with that he/she is now deceased. This way at least one of the creditors MAY report this information to the credit bureaus and at that time fraudulent accounts will be harder to open in the deceased name. Don't worry about paying on them... don't send in a dime.. let the company who wants to pursue the debt take legal avenues to get it otherwise don't worry about it until its time to worry about it. Overall YOU should be safe. and not obligated to pay for anything unless it is specified in a WILL...
