Need for the Document

A death certificate is an official document issued by the government, which declares cause of death, location of death, time of death and some other personal information about the deceased.

There are several reasons why you may need to obtain a death certificate.
Most often it’s to serve as proof for legal purposes. These reasons may include accessing
i. Pension benefits
ii. Claiming life insurance
iii. Settling estates
iv. Getting married (if a widow or widower needs to prove that their previous partner has passed)
v. Arranging for a funeral
Government officials may need the death certificate to review the cause of death during investigations to determine, if foul-play occurred.
Public health officials use death certificates to compile data on various statistics, including leading causes of death. Public health policies depend heavily on the mortality data from death certificates because they are the only source of information about the causes of death and illnesses preceding death.

Information which might help

Medical facilities that are authorized to offer death certificates Information can also be obtained from the registrar of births and deaths from the Ministry of Immigration and registration of persons.
You can obtain a death certificate for a deceased relative, house mate, or anyone for whom you took charge of the body.
The process should be commenced as soon as death is confirmed, and should not be later than a month.
