How many Certified Death Certificates will I need?

This state certified document is required by banks and other companies as proof of a death occurring.

Death Certificates

We will assist you with ordering Death Certificates. The first copy is $13.00 each additional copy is $10.00. These fees are charged by the State of Missouri. Below is information pertaining to what who may require Death Certificate.

Take a moment to read the information below to make sure you will have the death certificate copies needed to take care of your loved one’s belongings and assets.

One of the reasons death certificates became so important in the United States was for the government to collect accurate mortality data on U.S. citizens. Moving forward many different organizations have started to require a death certificate as proof of a person’s death in order to properly close accounts, claim benefits, or to settle estate claims. Many funeral homes or legal aids will help you identify what you will need a death certificate for and how many copies may be necessary; however, here are a few common organizations that generally require an official death certificate copy.

Bank Accounts- Banks will require a death certificate to do the following actions:

  • Transfer an individual checking or joint account
  • Transfer a savings account
  • Transfer a safe deposit box

Property- Mortgage companies and other property-related organizations will need the certificate in order to:

  • Transfer each title of real estate ownership
  • Transfer ownership of a vehicle

Government and/or Insurance- Official death certificate copies will be needed for multiple government agencies and/or insurance companies:

  • A copy for each insurance claim including funeral home costs
  • Transferring or redeeming stocks, bonds, or treasury bills
  • Federal and state tax returns
  • Rolling over an IRA account

Having the correct amount of death certificates will help make this process a little bit less stressful.
