Death Certificate Application

Death records are not public records and may only be issued to those persons who have a personal or property right interest with the decedent. If you are not a relative of the deceased person, a letter or document from the office or agency that needs the death certificate must accompany the request. Complete the Death Certificate Application and include:

  1. Mail: a legible/readable copy of your valid photo identification card must be submitted with payment.
  2. Fax: a legible/readable copy of your valid photo identification card must be submitted to 217-258-6435 with payment using a major credit card or debit card.
  3. In Person: a valid photo identification card must be submitted with payment.

Current processing times are within two business days, upon validation of application. For expedited delivery, appropriate delivery fees will be charged.

In all instances, if identification is not provided, unreadable or expired, your request will be returned unprocessed.
