My spouse and I have joint accounts with RCU. If one of us passes away, will the survivor still be able to access the other's account?

In the case of Joint Tenant Accounts, where you are joint on each other's accounts, both parties have full ownership and rights. The passing of one tenant would not change the ownership and rights of the other. Beneficiaries are not involved unless both tenants have passed away.
