Just as we prioritise the security of your ZebPay account, we also want to ensure that your fiat and crypto holdings remain in trusted hands in the future.
By designating a nominee for your account, you are telling ZebPay who should receive custody of your fiat and crypto wallets in the unfortunate event of you passing away. This nominee designation does not interfere with your will or inheritance planning but simply instructs us to transfer your funds to the person you choose.
All you need to do is send us an email with some basic information. Please take a look at the details below.
Benefits of Nomination:
Nomination ensures all fiat currency and cryptocurrencies in respect of a customer’s holdings in her/his ZebPay account will be transferred by ZebPay to the nominee, subject to
verification of the nominee verification of the fact of passing of the customer's applicable laws
The nominee receives the crypto/fiat only as an agent and trustee for the legal heirs or legatees of the customer. The distribution of the crypto/fiat to eligible heirs of the deceased customer will be determined by applicable laws, and ZebPay will not play any role in such determination. Customers should opt for the nomination facility to avoid hassles and inconveniences in case of unforeseen events in future.
Hence, ZebPay strongly encourages each and every customer to add a nominee to such customer’s ZebPay account.
Who can be a nominee?
The main purpose of appointing a nominee by a customer in her/his ZebPay account is to ensure a smooth transition to the nominee of the funds/crypto lying in the customer’s account upon death. Due to the above reason, the customer should appoint a nominee who is trusted by the customer, whether or not the proposed nominee is a family member.
