The estate is responsible for the credit card debts of the deceased. That means before the estate can be settled, all debts have to be cleared. If there is not enough in the estate to cover them, they may not get paid.

Not sure what the procedure is for all credit card companies, but as long as you are not in charge of the deceased's estate, and your name is not on the credit card account, then you are not responsible. However, you are supposed to call the credit card company and report their death. Any charges incurred after the date of the deceased's death, you are responsible for -- as an authorized user. If you wish to assume the credit card account, you must send the company a copy of your documents naming you as the 'executor of the estate'. This was the case in my mother's recent departure.
