There may be several agencies and organisations who need to be notified of your loved one’s death in order to assist in the administration of their estate.

For example, the Executor of the Will, banks, government services, utilities, insurers, just to name a few.

The Federal Government has established the Australian Death Notification Service that may assist with this process.

This is a free service supported by the Births, Deaths and Marriages registries across Australia, to help make challenging times a bit easier.

You can notify multiple services, including financial, insurance and superannuation institutions, telecommunications and utility providers, government services and more via the Australian Death Notification Service.

Please visit The Australian Death Notification Service for further information, or to begin the process.
