Death Certificates

where to get death certificates signingAfter the loss of a loved, obtaining a death certificate is one of the most critical steps to complete. Before any business or legal issues of the estate can be resolved, a certified death certificate must be filed as it serves as the official record that death has occurred. It provides valuable information about the cause of death, the decedent, and final disposition.

1. Where to Get Death Certificates?

A certified copy of the death certificate can be ordered through either Scarr Funeral Home or the Registrar of Vital Statistics in your area. Many families often find it easier to request one directly from the funeral director that worked with your family.

2. How Many Death Certificates Do I Need?

It is recommended that you order several copies of the death certificate. Many agencies that require legal confirmation of death must receive a certified death certificate and are unable to accept photocopies. Because of this, we encourage families to order a few more than you think you will need just to be safe. If you are unsure of exactly how many you require, our staff can assist you to determine this.

3. What Is a Death Certificate Used for?

A death certificate is necessary for a variety of legal, personal, and statistical reasons.

The primary purpose is to settle legal aspects of an estate. The death certificate is used to settle insurance benefits, pension claims, access a safety deposit box, and transfer the title of real estate and personal property like vehicles.

A death certificate is also necessary for many personal reasons. Many families find comfort and peace of mind from a death certificate to help acknowledge the loss of a loved one. If the family is dependent upon the insurance and benefits of the deceased, having a copy of the death certificate can help to expedite the process to receive the needed benefits.

Many statistical reasons rely on a death certificate being filed. Not only is it a source for state and national mortality rates, but it also is needed for health and medical research efforts. The data obtained from death certificates are used to determine health status at different levels of government as well as influence which medical conditions and studies receive funding.

4. Who Can Obtain the Death Certificate?

Only certain people are allowed to obtain a death certificate for an individual. These typically include:

• Spouse
• Child
• Parent
• Sibling
• Executor
