Death Certificates

The death certificate is important for:

Legal Reasons: The death certificate is a permanent legal record of the fact of death. State agencies always stipulate that a death certificate is to be filed. It provides important information about: the decedent, the cause of death, and final disposition.  

This information is used in the application for insurance benefits, settlement of pension claims, and transfer of title of real and personal property. The certificate is prima facie evidence of the fact of death and, therefore, can be introduced in court as evidence when a question about the death arises.

Personal Reasons: The death certificate in many cases provides family members with closure, peace-of-mind, and documentation of the cause of death. It also provides peace-of-mind by facilitating efficient processing of needed benefits as those described above.

During the funeral arrangement conference, we will ask you how many certified copies of the death certificate you will need.  As part of our service, we will obtain these on your behalf; the cost charged by the Register of Deeds will be added to the Statement of Goods and Services. 

Here is a guide to assist you in determining the number of Certified Death Certificates needed:

                        ____    Home Mortgage

                        ____    Property Titles & Deeds

                        ____    Vehicle Registration & Title Changes

                        ____    Banks and Credit Unions

                        ____    Life Insurance Companies

                        ____    Pensions, Annuities, IRAs

                        ____    Stocks & Bonds

                        ____    Union Benefits

                        ____    Attorney / CPA

                        ____    Your Records / Family Members

                       
It is always better to order a few more than what you think you will need. Most agencies will only accept Certified Death Certificates, not photocopies.

If you have questions about obtaining copies of a Death Certificate, please contact us. We are here to assist you.
