Autopsy Records

Programs that maintain and make available to authorized individuals autopsy reports, photographs, video recordings and other related autopsy records. An autopsy is a post-mortem examination of a body, generally conducted by the coroner's office, to determine the cause of death or the character and extent of changes produced by disease. In most jurisdictions, autopsy records are considered confidential and cannot be disclosed to the media or the general public.

Death Certificates

Programs that issue, maintain and, where appropriate, provide access to or copies of the official documents that certify that an individual has died. Death certificates specify the cause of death and are generally signed by an attending or examining physician. Available in most jurisdictions are authorized copies which may be required to obtain death benefits, claim insurance proceeds, notify Social Security and access other services related to an individual’s identity; and informational copies which cannot be used to establish identity. Only individuals designated by law have access to authorized copies of a person's death certificate.
