Register a senior’s death with us

Complete this form to register the death of someone who was getting New Zealand Superannuation or a Veteran’s Pension. If you’re from a trustee company (e.g, Public Trust, or law firm), you can complete this form and we’ll send you estate details for the person who’s died.

We know there’s a lot to sort out when someone passes away. We may be able to help with:

  • Your NZ Super payment. If you’re their partner and you qualify for NZ Super, your payment will change to a single rate. We’ll send you a letter to confirm your new payment amount.
  • A Funeral Grant to pay for some of the funeral costs. If the person was single, we’ll send an application form to you, otherwise we’ll send it to their partner. There are certain criteria you need to meet to get a Funeral Grant.
