After a financial setback years ago, my dad cashed in & emptied his box. He was terrible following up on cancellation situation such as never returning an old cable box and getting billed yearly for it! I found a key to the safety box and realized that he was having $50 deducted yearly for it. I went to the bank to find out if it still have anything in there but he didn't have a will so I couldn't access it. My mom is still alive and we thought that everything goes to her but since he just had his name on it...the bank said no. What can we do? I'm worried about spending money to get into the box and there's nothing but my luck, I'll just close the account & he'll have some bonds in there! I had to quit my job to take care of Mom and my husband has been out of work for awhile & I really want to avoid shelling out money...anyone know what I can do?
