Legal Heir Certificate and Indemnity Bond

Dear members,

My grandfather passed away in Dec 19 and he held some Rewards Points with Citibank.

Now, in-order to get these reward points redeemed, Citibank is asking for certain documents which includes Legal Heir Certificate and an Indemnity Bond.

I am not sure who'd be the right person to approach for these documents and what is the process to get them?

Also, not considering credit card rewards points, how important and useful is it to have a Legal Heir Certificate? more

Did your grandfather not have someone as a joint account holder or did he he not nominate someone?

In such a situation, it would have been pragmatic to use up the points as a joint account holder or as a nominee instead of wasting time on getting a legal heir certificate. more
