If you have been appointed liquidator and have agreed to assume the responsibility, you must carry out all of the steps to settle the succession. You will have to contact government departments and agencies to terminate programs or request benefits. They will require an official proof of death issued by the Directeur de l'état civil. You must make sure which type of document is required and the time limit for each claim for benefit, compensation and transfer or cancellation.
If you completed the Application for the simplified forwarding of information relative to the death with the Declaration of death, the government departments and agencies mentioned on the form will be notified of the death by the Directeur de l’état civil. You will not have to provide them with a death certificate.
