Agencies such as Financial Institutions, Insurance Companies, Law Enforcement, Government or any other requester may be designated as a properly qualified applicant by demonstrating a direct and tangible interest in the record. Information from the certificate is necessary for the determination or protection of a personal or property right for a person, a client or an agency.
EXAMPLE: A letter typed on company letterhead addressed to the clients/applicants (full name), the full name of the person on the record requested and the purpose for the certificate. This letter would need to be signed and dated by the agent representing that company. The letter should be presented to the vital records office along with a photocopy of the policy or other documents that may establish tangible interest.
