A death certificate is legal proof of death. It is required to settle an estate, to receive entitlement for benefits i.e. pension and life insurance, and for land titles.
Once a death has been registered (see Registering a Death), a Death Certificate can be processed.
If the death has not yet been registered, additional time will be required before a death certificate can be processed.
