Death Certificates

A Certified Death Certificate is necessary before many things can be done following a death.  A death certificate can be obtained through any Court House in Minnesota and your Funeral Home can assist you with this.. Currently the first death certificated ordered is $13 and any additional ones ordered at that same time are $6 each. Minnesota has two styles of death certificate: a Fact of Death Certificate, and a Cause of Death Certificate.  It is a good idea to obtain multiple copies of a death certificate as most agencies require a certified certificate and not a photocopy. Some common needs for death certificates are to cash in a life Insurance policy or stocks/bonds, sell real estate, and to cancel credit cards, etc...
