You should discuss the account with the bank. There may be a payable on death feature on that account. The bank should be able to advise you of the status of the account. You should take a copy of your grandmother's death certificate with you when you visit the bank. Since the account is set up in your name, if you provide proper relationship evidence between you and your grandma and also provide identification proof for yourself and provide the death certificate of your grandma, there should be no issues in getting the proceeds of the account. Note: Since the account is 33 years old, if you have not operated it in the past one or two years or more, the bank might have moved the account to Dormant state and might charge you a penalty for the same.
