Death Certificates

Vital Statistics

Death certificates without the cause of death are public record.  Death certificates with the cause of death are issued only to immediate family members age 18 or older, persons named in the will or beneficiaries of life insurance policies (documentation required).

Currently our office can provide death certificates for deaths that occurred in Okeechobee county from 2009 to present.  Electronic death certificates from other counties may be available for recent deaths.

Death certificates are available for purchase for $15.00. Valid photo ID is required when requesting cause of death.
