CASKET FURNITURE - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How many copies of the death certificate do I need?
Since a properly completed Certificate of Death, signed by the attending physician or coroner will have been prepared and given to you, you will already have one copy to record with the appropriate government agencies. Many times, a copy of the original will suffice to prove a death has occurred. You may need additional copies to include with your insurance or tax records, however. Since this document is a public document, additional certified copies can always be obtained at a later time if required.
