| | Re: Closing Joint Account?
I went to the bank today and while I was there asked about how to take my name off a joint account, when the time comes (soon). What I was told is that both parties need to be present to do it, or I can use the Power of Attorney to do it. I wonder how a bank let you close a joint account on your own, as I do not think based on what I was told, this is possible, unless she signed something beforehand with the bank to allow you to do it. I think the bank is in the wrong here, they should not have let you close that account as it was a joint account, so you both needed to agree to closing it.
