• Succession certificates OR probation

Whether Money  from  Bank  can be withdrawn  by  beneficiaries without  succession  certificate/ or probation. Which  will be better?  Why?   My father  made a will.
Also  can you clarify   regarding the operation  of bank  locker.  Is it   necessary  to  give an official   letter    to  the   bank  manager?.

Since your father made a will, you will have to get the will probated in a court. Succession certificate applies only where there is no will. Without probate, bank will not allow you to withdraw or operate the locker.
