hello po pa ask lang po, tungkol po sa death certificate, kahit sino po ba pued kumuha ng death certificate ng isang tao na namatay na? i mean are death certificates open to the public? also if complete name lang po ang known can the public get a certified photocopy on security paper ? without knowing the actual date of death?
1. kahit sino po ba puede kumuha ng death certificate ng isang tao na namatay na? Technically, no. Documents relating to the status of persons, registered with the Civil Registrar, should be accessible only to the person himself, or his heirs/relatives. [Technically... kasi kung may kakilala ka, pwede mong makuha, pero hindi actually tama yun].
Also, sa online application, baka makalusot yung hindi kamag-anak ang nagre-request [di rin naman alam ng PSA kung kamag-anak ka o hindi pag nag-request ka online]
2. are death certificates open to the public? Per the earlier answer, these are not open to the public. They are public documents, but should properly not be obtainable by just about anyone.
3. if complete name lang po ang known can THE PUBLIC get a certified photocopy on security paper? Nope [see above answers].
4. Without knowing the actual date of death? Computerized na ang records ng PSA, so it should be possible for a relative/heir to request for a copy even if they do not know the actual date of death, but if the name is common, baka may kapareho [even with the middle name], so hindi mo rin masabi kung yun talaga yung namatay.
Note also that for online application of death certificates the PSA requires, among others, date of death, place of death, date of marriage. See https://civilregistr...ath-certificate
The best thing to do would be to call up the PSA help line and ask if this is possible with their system. Call: 926-7333/926-9973/926-7274
