Vital records offices produce both the birth and death certificates that are used as legal documentation of identity.
For example, many federal and state agencies rely on birth certificates for proof of age, proof of citizenship, identification for employment purposes, to issue benefits or other documents (e.g. driver’s licenses, Social Security cards and Passports), and to assist in determining eligibility for public programs or benefits. Additionally, families rely on death certificates to obtain insurance benefits, access accounts of deceased loved ones and other activities necessary during a very difficult time.
Naphsis members help organizations determine the validity of these documents and protect citizens from identity fraud. For more information, read the recap from recent discussions among Naphsis members and partners.
