Call your family doctor so he or she can issue the Death Certificate, and then call Agustin Merino, where our Funeral Advisors will assist, guide and advise you on immediate procedures and insurance coverage for burial services.
You must have the government-issued identification of the deceased person (national ID card (DNI), passport, or immigration card (carnet de extranjería)) in order to correctly issue the Death Certificate.
If the deceased has not left any prior indications for this day, the family should discuss what type of service they will choose (burial or cremation), where they wish to perform the wake (home, funeral parlor or no wake, leaving the remains in the custody of the funeral home). Which cemetery will be chosen should also be discussed.
Allow our advisors to support you with reserving the funeral parlor for the desired time for burial or cremation in the chosen cemetery.
We advise notifying them when the immediate family has already commenced funeral preparations and know where the wake will take place, as well as the time and place of burial/cremation.
We will take care of registering the death in RENIEC for you.
Our advisors will inform you about the procedures to follow. Also, if you want, you can endorse them to be used as part of payment of the chosen service.
