How to make changes to a deceased person’s account
- We don't charge early termination fees (or other cancellation fees) for the deceased person’s line of service.
- If the deceased had lines with devices on an installment plan, the devices must be returned to AT&T. When they are, we can waive remaining unbilled installment plan charges associated with the canceled line.
- If the deceased was a wireless authorized user on your account and had a device with an installment plan, the device must be returned to AT&T. When we receive it, we can waive the remaining unbilled installment plan charges.
- If you want to keep any devices with an installment plan, you must pay off the installment plan and then you can cancel the line.
- You can transfer the deceased person’s line to another AT&T account, but you must pay any past due balance before the line can be moved. If there’s an installment plan associated with the line, it will stay active and transfer along with the line.
- Any outstanding account balance on the deceased’s canceled account may be the responsibility of the estate.
