Can I order as many Texas death
certificate copies as I want?

Yes, as long as you’re a qualified (Texas Vital Records states who can or who cannot get access to protected Texas death records) family member of the deceased person listed on the official Texas death certificate.

Most people order at least 10-20 certified copies which is what estate and legal experts recommend so they can properly give original death certificate copies to various organizations they will request official raised seal certified copies like life, cremation, medical, and burial insurance companies, federal and state tax returns, county and city property taxes, mortgage, and investment companies, banks/credit unions, IRS, social security administration (SSA), Veterans Administration (VA), hospitals, IRA/401K, family attorney, credit bureaus (one for each Equifax, Transunion, and Experian) post office to forward or stop the mail, assisted living facilities/nursing homes, apartment and condo complexes, cell phone providers, rental storage units, utility companies, DMV, transfer of human remains, and credit card companies.
