Affidavit of Death Basics

You have a lot to deal with when a loved one passes. An Affidavit of Death helps you take care of the some of the administrative tasks, like notifying businesses, courts, and agencies of the death. You often don't think about paperwork when planning a memorial. There's no need to add extra stress. An Affidavit of Death is simply a sworn statement that someone has passed away.

Use the Affidavit of Death document if:

  • You would like to notify the court of the deceased person's death and your interest in the estate.

An Affidavit of Death helps you take care of some of the details when someone passes away. Maybe you need to notify your late wife's life insurance policy about her passing. Maybe you need to take care of an existing car loan payment or credit card debt. Or maybe you're the beneficiary of an estate. Just one document lets you formally swear that a person has passed, letting you take care of certain tasks. Oftentimes, this form and a death certificate are all you need to close accounts, receive benefits, or take ownership or property. An Affidavit of Death is your promise - under oath - that someone has passed.

Other names for this document: Affidavit of Death of Trustee, Affidavit of Death of Joint Tenant, Affidavit of Death and Heirship
