Aeroplan Miles – Estate Options

One recent issue that came up in our many diverse client interactions is what can be done with Aeorplan Miles that remain in a deceased person’s account. There are two options:

Option 1:

Cost $30.00. Transfer miles in an Estate account and the miles must be used within 1 year. The Executor must email Aeroplan Estate Solutions, provide supporting documents, and ask to have points transferred into an Estate Account. This is the most popular request.

Option 2:

Cost $30.00, plus 1 cent per mile used from transferred Aeroplan account. You will need to ask to have the miles transferred into an existing Aeroplan account. While this option is more expensive, there is no one year redemption limit.

All in all quite reasonable, and nice to know that the miles are not lost upon the holder passing.
