Category: Quezon City Hall Series


01

When a loved one passes away, family members are suddenly faced with a lot of things that need their time and attention, all at the same time.  One of the most important things they need to accomplish is the registration of death.  This is a pertinent requirement especially when the family needs to claim insurances and other benefits under the name of the deceased; the sooner this is accomplished, the better for the bereaved family.

Death certificates are usually provided by the hospital where the person died; if the person died at home, the family may secure the death certificate from the funeral home/parlor.

Here are the requirements and registration fees when registering a death at the Quezon City Hall:

Requirements:

a. Death certificate that is certified by a licensed medical doctor or the attending physician, and

b. Signature of embalmer and his/her license number.

Registration Fees:

Registration Fee PHP 50.00

Transfer to Other Municipality/City PHP 100.00
Entrance from Other Municipality / City PHP 200.00

Renewal of an old niche (5 years) PHP 500.00
Issuance of Certified True Copy of Death Certificate PHP 40.00

A child’s birth must be registered at the city or municipal hall of the child’s birthplace within 30 days from the date of birth.  If parents fail to submit the necessary documents for registration, the child will not be issued a birth certificate until they file for a late registration.

Here are the documentary requirements when filing for late birth registration at the Quezon City Hall.  These are classified according the child’s birth right.

A. For Legitimate Children:

  • Original copy of the Baptismal Certificate
  • Certified True Copy of Marriage Contract

B. For Illegitimate Children:

  • Original copy of Baptismal Certificate
  • Joint Affidavit of two (2) disinterested persons

C. Acknowledgment through Documents (if father or mother or both parents are deceased):

  • Insurance
  • Report Card
  • Title of House and Lot
  • Certified True Copy of Death Certificate

Proceed to Counter 13 with the documents and wait for further instructions from the clerk.  A fee of PHP150 for late filing must be paid at the cashier.  You will also be informed when you may expect for the child’s birth certificate to be released for endorsement to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) office.

Once certified by the PSA, you may request for a copy at any PSA branch.  Succeeding requests may already be done online via www.psahelpline.ph or by calling 02-737-1111 and have the birth certificate delivered to you.
