When a loved one passes away, family members are suddenly faced with a lot of things that need their time and attention, all at the same time. One of the most important things they need to accomplish is the registration of death. This is a pertinent requirement especially when the family needs to claim insurances and other benefits under the name of the deceased; the sooner this is accomplished, the better for the bereaved family.
Death certificates are usually provided by the hospital where the person died; if the person died at home, the family may secure the death certificate from the funeral home/parlor.

a. Death certificate that is certified by a licensed medical doctor or the attending physician, and
