DD214 Copies

Copies of DD 214’s are restricted under federal law to the following parties:

  • Veteran listed on the DD 214
  • Next of kin if the Veteran is deceased. Next of kin is defined as an un-remarried widow or widower, son or daughter, father or mother, brother or sister. Proof of relationship to the deceased veteran will be required (death certificate, birth certificate, marriage license, etc.)
  • Anyone, other than the Veteran, must have the Veteran complete the required request form and provide a copy of the Veteran’s ID.

Veterans and their families may also contact the Veteran’s Affairs Office for program assistance and eligibility.

Death Certificates

At the conclusion of a death investigation, the Coroner issues a death certificate, which is the legal document that states the cause and manner of death. This is an extremely important document as it is used to settle criminal and civil legal matters and insurance benefits for survivors.

Copies of Death Certificates can be obtained from the Douglas County Health Department.

The Recording office will only have a record of Death Certificates that were recorded as part of a real estate transaction.  Any death certificate recorded in our office will have personal information redacted before copies are given and a request form must be completed.
