Why do I need to be identified by Westpac?

This is a legal requirement. The Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Act 2006 states that all signatories must be identified if instructing a financial institution about a Deceased Estate’s funds before such moneys can be released. Refer to Step 5: Identifying yourself.
