Death Certificate Request

How To Use

This review list is provided to inform you about this document in question and assist you in its preparation. Keep a copy of the transaction so you can send in a second notice. We recommend you make a phone call, if possible, to the proper location first to find out whether you need to have a bank check instead of a credit card, the correct amount of the total charge, and the proper department to send it to. On the other hand, if you have time and are not in a hurry, it can be less frustrating and just as effective in the long term, to send out an initial letter and let the bureaucracy grind slowly and respond at its pace.

As a Trustee or Executor you do not strictly need, as a rule, any authority to request an official death certificate. However, it simplifies and expedites matters if you include that authorization.
