The person, more precisely known as the Affiant, has to fill out their Affidavit to attest under oath that the Decedent has passed away and that they have a legal claim to some part of the Decedent's estate.

The identifying information of the Decedent, such as his name, state of residency before his death, social security number must be provided for this Affidavit. The date of the Decedent's death is also required in this Affidavit. Make sure that the copy of the official death certificate is also attached to the beneficiary to support their claim. Eventually, the information about the Decedent's estate, including its total value and the description of the specifics funds or property that the beneficiary is claiming, has to be given as well.

Once the Affiant completes the Affidavit of Death, the document has to be signed and notarized to be recognized as an official document. This signed document then can be used in courts, banks, and other institutions, holding the Decedent's property to which the beneficiary has a legal claim.

Applicable law Applicable law

No laws require specific information, which must be included in the Affidavit of Death. However, there are accepted practices for creating such documents, including the authorized information to the authority, that the Affiant has accurate facts about the Decedent's death.

All the claims to an estate and inheritance are a matter of state law. Before proceeding a request to a Decedent's estate, the Affiant has to make sure that a local court has duly probated the Decedent's estate.
