If the value of the estate is under $150,00, you (together with the other beneficiaries, if any) can provide the financial institutions with small estate affidavits (Probate Code Section 13100). You will also need death certificates.

I agree with Michele Cusack; however you will also need to have personal identification of each of each beneficiary, in addition to the documents mentioned by Ms Cusack, plus bank may also have you complete their own bank approved affidavit.
