Death Certificates

Death certificates are legal documents certified by the state of Louisiana and are used to file all claims, transfer owner-ship of any assets, or to continue Social Security Benefits for a minor.  Normally, each institution will require a certified copy of a death certificate as a result, multiple copies are often needed. The State of Louisiana currently charges $9.00 for the first certified copy and $7.00 for each additional certified copy. If any additional copies are needed in the future, you may contact our staff for assistance.
