I have heard the average lifespan considerably shortens for guys using this setup

As far as I know in the event of your death it would be illegal for her or anybody else to use your bank card.

I don't really understand how it works but people have reported being able to add their wife as signatory without her name appearing ion the account. (and hence no issue to use the account for immigra

thanks guys.  joint account doesnt work for immigration.  ATM card i knew wasnt practical ,so illegal too. i guess im not surprised. widow cant get funds but of course the state can get it.

i suppose i will need some kind of power of attorney or last will and testament or suchlike

Make a will and be specific.

Provide the bank with a copy of the will.

Yes you can add your wife to your account without having her 

name on the bank book,so OK for Immigration, they add her name

to the signature space on the bank book, which can only be seen

with a UV light, but make sure you completely trust your wife 😉

I don't know what you call it ,but just explain to the Bank what you

want to do, CMBI bank cannot do it.

Ask your bank about that

 

 

This is indeed possible. No personal knowledge but has been confirmed from couple of the experts on thaivisa that have this in place.

It amounts to signature in bankbook that shows up under blue light. In addition some forms are filled in with the bank. 

BTW the account has no issue in being used for immigration requirements

Get her listed on the account as having access to it.

It only takes a few minutes in the bank and her signature is listed.

The account still in your name only

But ensure it's recorded that she alone can sign withdrawals, etc.
