LDS Account for Deceased Members

Postby kharoldsen » Sun Feb 11, 2018 6:46 pm

Hello All. I have a question about LDS account info for deceased members. I keep my journal and scripture notes in my LDS account notebook. Should something happen to me, I would want to make sure that my family has access to my notebooks. Anyone know what happens to a LDS account when a membership record is marked as deceased? My spouse knows my password, so she would still have access to the account, but I wanted to make sure that the notebooks are still accessible. I appreciated any guidance.

Once CHQ is notified that the member is deceased, the account is deactivated.

One the death is recorded by the ward clerk the associated LDS Account is deactivated and can't be accessed. I haven't heard of any way to access the notes once the LDS Account has been removed. I think your best option is to regularly either print a copy of your notes to PDF or use the Download option to store them on your local system.
