Requires that safe deposit box keys issued by a financial organization must be imprinted with the organization’s routing number. *This law also applies to all banks operating in Texas whose home office is out of state.*

The true benefit of this law has enabled a countless number of people to locate a deceased family member’s safe deposit box containing important documents such as wills, insurance papers, stocks, bonds, birth certificates, as well as family heirlooms, jewelry and money.
