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.
