For 25 years, VitalChek has been an official, government-authorized service for citizens to securely order their certified birth certificates and other vital records from official government agencies nationwide.
Other online services may not be authorized by the agency issuing vital records, and may charge additional fees without providing approved services or guaranteeing confidentiality of your data.
Obtaining copies of vital records such as birth or death certificates are generally not free. Government agencies offer a variety of ways to obtain your vital records including by mail, in person, or by phone.
While agencies may offer online ordering services, in many cases VitalChek is the authorized method the agency has chosen to provide such service. Each agency charges a specific fee for these certificates, which typically ranges from $2.00 - $50.00.
VitalChek charges an additional Processing Fee, depending upon the level of service the agency has required, which generally ranges from $2.50-$16.00. Other online services may charge an additional $20 - $60 or more for fewer services.
The VitalChek Processing Fees cover a variety of services including secure online ordering and electronic payment processing, order tracking, 24/7 customer support, identity verification and authentication, among many other benefits.
VitalChek also offers the ability to select expedited shipping if you need your certificate in a hurry. If selected, the additional cost for this option will be shown during your ordering process.
