When is FBAR reporting due in case of signatory authority upon death?

Level 1

Hi, my bank in Germany allows me to give someone signature authority over my account in the event of my death. The bank will only allow the person to access my account upon presentation of my official death certificate. Does this person have an FBAR reporting requirement while I am still alive?

Thanks in advance.

*should* be open only to tax professionals.  

As we know, Intuit REFUSES to restrict access because then they wouldn't get all those social media "strokes".

Remind you of anyone ?????

Could you give me a hint?  My brain has been a little foggy lately.  It seems to have started when I started drinking my cup of Clorox with breakfast.
