Return Code (R15) - Beneficiary entitled to benefits is deceased.

What it means

The bank account holder and/or the beneficiary for that account are deceased and the bank is returning the EFT.

How to fix it

For tenant payments, Association owner payments, and rental application fees

Contact the resident or applicant to find out how they'd like to proceed.

For rental owner and vendor payments

Contact the rental owner or vendor to find out how they'd like to proceed.

Buildium strongly suggests you get epayment information from a voided check. If a voided check is unavailable, get a letter from the bank or another "official" document.
