Having to wait in queues and submit multiple pages of paperwork is a thing of the past. Most processes that used to be handled in that format are now obsolete and a majority of them can now be done on the internet, without the use of much paper. The death certificate agency gives people all the information that they need to gather these certificates and all the processes connected to them. Additionally, it even allows them to handle some of the processes through the website. The best part about it is the FAQ section where most of the questions that they have can be addressed, and if they are not, they can always ask.
What are the various processes the death certificate website handles?
One of the most significant processes the death certificate agency handles is making changes to a death certificate. Applying for a death certificate mainly because it is always done for someone else is difficult as it is but when an applicant receives one that has errors on it, they would have to handle the entire death certificate process again and this can be quite troublesome.
The website allows people to gather the list of supporting documents and download the applications needed to make the necessary change. The applicant would also have to provide some identification of the deceased individual and some of their own. It would be an added benefit if they could provide some connection between them and the person who passed away to make the process move smoothly. After gathering all the documents needed and filling out the application forms, everything would have to be uploaded to the website and the death certificate would be mailed to them accordingly.
This is an overall upgrade from the previous system where people had to gather all their paperwork and go to the Municipality with their documents to get this done. More often than not this involved waiting in a queue which would take up a lot of time.
Other roles that the website handles is the entire application process for a death certificate which can be done in under 20 minutes if the applicant has all the information needed at their end. Otherwise, people can always download a list of documents needed and gather them at their convenience before they begin with the process. The portal also assists people to reapply for misplaced death certificates. If they had a death certificate that would mean that the application processes has already been handled, so people would be able to submit the paperwork to get another copy of the death certificate. They might have to provide information as to why they would need it in the form of an application and their identification documents to make sure that they were connected to the deceased individual. The website would not take too much time to provide them with it and it would even be sent to the address provided.
