Currently she has 2 individual cards, both opened in early 2009. The oldest 2 TL were joint accounts. Of the 5 account, the BoA the only AU.
When we sat down to convert the joint accounts to individual, It was my understanding that upon a spouses death, history from those TL held jointly would continue to carry forth on mom's CR( they appear on CR and will till 2015). Perhaps I was misinformed as to the weight these joint accts carry for the surviving spouse? But at the end of the day, the joint acct cards were in dad's name (name as it appeared on card).
^ Thanks for the replies all, much appreciated.
