Please note, that under Ohio law, anyone can obtain a death certificate for a death that was pronounced in our jurisdiction WITHOUT the decedent's social security number.
If you need a certified copy of a death certificate WITH the decedent's social security number, you must be one of the following:
- The decedent's spouse, or lineal descendant - The deceased's executor, attorney, or legal agent - A representative of an investigative government agency - A private investigator - A funeral director (or agent responsible for disposition of the body) acting on behalf of the deceased's family - A veteran's service officer - An accredited member of the media
You will have to bring proof or attach a copy of proof of one of the above reasons. If the decedent's date of death is MORE than five years from the application date, then this rule does not apply.
Anyone who passed away in a hospital must obtain the death certificate from the local health department of the hospital's jurisdiction.
