Yesterday I told my grandfather about Hubpages and Adsense. He was happy that I was doing something creative and earning from adsense for my work. But he had a few questions which I could not answer. He said life is uncertain what after your death. Does all your content goes to hubpages and adsense. Can anyone else from the family sign up for your account.
If you have given someone your passwords, they can pick it up and change whatever they want.
My Adsense gets deposited directly to our joint bank account every month, so if I died, my wife would keep getting income for a long time without changing anything.
If we both die, our kids have the passwords and geekish enough husbands to do whatever they want or need to do.
Thanks for your reply Pcunix. But I am a Non-US Citizen and get checks for my adsense earnings and not bank deposit. I have checked and saw no option to change payee name in Adsense. This would mean that my family cannot get the checks deposited in bank after my death as that would require my signature.
But a person with passwords can create their own account and change the pages.
They might lose a little income while doing that, of course.
from the UK and from memory, when my father died about ten years ago we took death certificate and probate etc to bank.
The bank closed his account and transferred the contents to an exors of Johns Fathers account with me and my sister as joint signatories.
Into this we were able to pay in cheques to my father, then withdraw the cash. The account has not been closed yet.
The Google account is an asset. Seems to me that estate laws would apply.
Just my best guess.
I think you can find the answer here:
https://www.google.com/adsense/support/ … nswer=9906
According to Google
"If you're located in one of the following countries, you won't have the option to update your payee name within your account.
Algeria,Bahrain, Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia,Jordan,Kuwait,Lebanon,Libya,Malaysia,Morocco,Nepal,Oman,Pakistan, Palestinian Territory,Philippines,Qatar,Saudi Arabia,Singapore,Sri Lanka, Thailand,Tunisia,UAE,Vietnam,Yemen
Some Solution about this problem
1. Make another Adsense account with different Payee Name (one of your family member's name).
2. You can convert your account into Joint account ( Thanks Pcunix for this idea) then other person can take benefit of adsense money after your death.
I think that no requirement of signature for deposit cheque in bank.
If you die your adsense account dies, hwoever you can transfer websites to your own name, and then create your own adsense account and replace the adsense ID's.
Better the google will provide solution to this problem so that it legitimate adsense users family will benefit after the account holder death.
I feel that if we send a copy of the death certificate of the account holder along with a covering letter to Google and requesting the name to be changed to your name, (in those countries where the account name cannot be changed,) Google may understand the situation and agree to change it to your name. I'm not sure about this. Just my thoughts.
You cannot create or continue a bank account in the name of a person who is deceased, that can get you in a whole heap of trouble. Joint accounts are changed to single accoutns.
You must create a new adsense account and place the new code on the sites.
There are two basic components to this issue. One, the Hubpages Account. And two, the Adsense Account. When a person dies, generally such properties come under the estate of the deceased. Then the legal heirs of the deceased are entitled to them. However, any of the terms in the TOS of Hubpages and/or Adsense can limit the scope of the transferability or succession to the accounts. Hence, a comprehensive and exhaustive study of the provisions under the two respective agreements can only shed some reliable light on the issue.
A bank account of a deceased person dies with him/her. However, his/her legal heirs are entitled to the money already deposited in the account. A new cheque issued in the deceased's name is not encashable legally.
Why dont you just get him to write on your account and give him the earnings when he achieves payout? Keep tabs on his hubs as to how much he is earning from anaylitics and when he dies, you can forward cheques to the next of kin or keep it if he wishes this.
Just an idea!

Why do I show 0 page views at Google Adsense, but 200 and some impressions. This doesn't make sense to me. Google Adsense never shows the same page views or impressions that I show elsewhere. Can anyone help me understand this?
