Revised Options for Death Certificate Submissions to PrePlan

As of September 1, 2020, we will no longer be able to accept the temporary COVID-19 General Administration along with registered working copies of the EDRS Death Certificate in our office. We received many positive responses and going forward are pleased to announce that we can offer new options based from the feedback.
