In New York State, a death certificate is issued by the New York State Department of Health or the NYC Health Department for people who die in one of the 5 boroughs (Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island). There are strict requirements as who is entitled to obtain a copy of a death certificate. For expedite processing, NYC Health Department uses VitalChek, a secure third-party vendor, to process internet orders.

RELATED DOCUMENTS: if the death certificate is used by the family to settle the estate of the deceased abroad, a certified copy of the Will along with exemplified copy of letter of testamentary and decree from the New York Surrogate's Court are often required.
