Get the death certificate

To get a death certificate as an estate executor, you can go to the Vital Records Office in the county or state where the death occurred. There is specific information you’ll need to get it done successfully on your first trip. In some cases, the funeral director will manage the process of getting the death certificate for you, but you’ll still need to provide the key facts for them. You can also order death certificates online, but may need to pay a fee for doing so. Regardless of your approach, you can use the spreadsheet below to assemble the required information you’ll need to successfully complete this process.
