“Loyalty programs are essentially contracts with the airline and you need to review each airline’s contract to see what is possible after death,” Paula Leibovitz Goodwin, a partner in the Personal Planning Group at Perkins Coie LLP, told Forbes. “You cannot assume all of the contracts are the same. It is possible that the contract is not even assignable, and the airline spells out who the beneficiaries will be.”

While some airline loyalty programs are not eligible to be passed on when you do (like Delta and Southwest), others may transfer points for a fee. Those planning on bequeathing their miles should specifically mention a recipient in their will.
