Certified death records are valid for most legal and or official purposes including but not limited to, providing proof of death for life insurance claims, probate court heir filings and social security death and or pension/retirement benefits.
The charge for locating, obtaining and shipping a Massachusetts certified death certificate is $45 [US]. Quantity discounts apply for duplicates of the same record ordered at the same time.
If you do not need a death certificate for official or legal reasons, you can request a transcribed record. The charge for locating, transcribing and emailing a death record is $20 [US].
A transcribed record is not an official or legal document. However, it is an excellent alternative for such purposes as genealogy research or for background investigations. All information recorded on the original record is hand copied by one of our researchers. Information is then transcribed into a "plain text" PDF file format. It is only delivered as an email attachment.
If you need the record(s) for any legal or official purpose, such as applying for life insurance, or social security benefits or probate matters, order a certified record.
