And that can be done even after the file has been flagged with a death indicator, Griffin says. In the meantime, there is a greater risk of identity theft, according to Nikki Junker, social media coordinator and victim adviser for the Identity Theft Resource Center in San Diego. For that reason, the center advises executors to make the effort to notify the credit bureaus directly.
Additional notifications mean extra paperwork and more fees to get copies of the death certificate. But Junker says the effort and cost is worthwhile, even at such a stressful time.
Some states offer a discount for multiple copies ordered at the same time. Source: State offices of vital statistics. If the death occurred in suspicious circumstances, samples may also need to be kept by the police as evidence for a longer period. The coroner's office will discuss the situation with you if, following an inquest, tissue samples need to be retained for a certain length of time.

Sometimes the partner or relative of the deceased person will request a hospital post-mortem to find out more about the cause of death. Hospital post-mortems can only be carried out with consent. Sometimes a person may have given their consent before they died. During the post-mortem, only the organs or tissue you have agreed to can be removed for examination. A post-mortem will be carried out as soon as possible, usually within 2 to 3 working days of a person's death.
Depending upon when the examination is due to take place, you may be able to see the body before the post-mortem is carried out.
Facility Licensing & Inspections
The post-mortem takes place in an examination room that looks similar to an operating theatre. The examination room will be licensed and inspected by the HTA. During the procedure, the deceased person's body is opened and the organs removed for examination. A diagnosis can sometimes be made by looking at the organs. Some organs need to be examined in close detail during a post-mortem. These investigations can take several weeks to complete. Once release papers have been issued, the undertakers you have appointed will be able to collect the body from the mortuary in preparation for the funeral.
In some cases, the report may be sent to a hospital doctor or GP so they can discuss it with you. You can also choose to be emailed when someone replies to your comment.
