File Based Death Audit

Reduce Fraud and Over Payments

Don't limit yourself to just the Social Security Death Master File (DMF).  To protect constituents' private information the DMF has been reduced in recent years by state and federal legislation.  Therefore, we have supplemented our database with additional federal and state resources, creating one of the most complete listings of deceased individuals in the United States. 

Berwyn Group's proprietary search engine can handle typos, data entry errors, and system wide data challenges. Therefore, the data results we return to you will be more accurate and complete.

Obituary Search

Many deaths reported through obituaries are not available through the Social Security Death Master File (DMF) or state vital statistic files. These changes have created an annual deficit of 1 million death records.  ObitCheck helps you locate deaths that are no longer available.
