What would happen to my assets and my debts if I pass away?

I filed for bankruptcy this year and I am already near my 60's where anything could happen. I've always wondered what would happen to my assets in the bankrupt estate or my remaining debts in case something bad happens to me and I pass away, hoping that this doesn't happen to me and that I live a longer life.

    No Name

    Hoping that you live for the longest time possible, should you pass away, your yestate (different from bankruptcy estate), assets, money, property etc.. distributed to persons who will inherit them would be subject to the funeral, testimony and administration expenses and the OA will continue managing the bankrupt estate to pay off your debts to the creditors. Therefore your death will not discharge you of your debts.

Instead of directly transferring funds from your account to a vendor, you pay CardUp via credit card. CardUp will then transfer the funds to your designated vendor.

    Terrible customer service in Singapore.

    PayPal / PayPal

    This folks have a terrible customer service in Singapore. If you have a problem, then good luck trying to contact them. I requested for refund and stop any payment to a certain company because I did not receive the ordered items and there was no delivery schedule or whatsoever. The reply was really classic, "Thank you for reporting this case, after reviewing your case, we found that this transaction was not unauthorized and hence couldn't be covered under PayPal Purchase Protection" and just like that the case was closed.
