Death Certificate Price Hike A Burden

September 4, 2018

Editor: As of Aug. 21, the Department of Health is raising the price of death certificates to $20 for every copy. Your funeral director had no say or control over this price increase. Our registrars our being paid the same amount of $3 a copy and the state will receive $17. The registrars do all the work and pay for their own supplies with no reimbursement from the state. I understand the burden this will be on most families in our area. Frantz Stegura Funeral Director NANTICOKE
