Doctors, Funeral Directors Reminded To Register
For Missouri Electronic Vital Records System

As of April 1, 2012, deaths in Missouri will no longer be registered with county vital records offices. All deaths will be electronically registered with the State on the Missouri Electronic Vital Records (MoEVR) System at https://moevr.dhss.mo.gov/moevr/.

All data providers in the death registration process should register with the system, including county medical examiners and coroners, funeral directors and embalmers, sheriffs, physicians, and chief medical officers of licensed health care facilities, and other institutions providing medical care, treatment, or confinement of persons.

The change is a result of state legislation passed and signed into law in 2010. Senate Bill 740 mandates use of an electronic death registration system established by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior  Services.

The electronic system will enable the State to provide electronic notification of a death to the Social Security Administration for purposes of deactivating a Social Security Number.

"County vital records offices will continue to provide death certificate copy services but, since we will no longer receive original death certificates, services will be entirely dependent on the State MoEVR System," said Peggy Meeker, Chief Deputy Recorder, St. Louis City Recorder of Deeds.

Questions about MoEVR registration should be made to Vital Records Bureau, Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Jefferson City, at 573.751.6381.
