For birth records, use EVVE (GN 00302.980). If not successful, the FO should write directly to the State at the above address
to obtain birth records. Make birth record requests using SSA-L706.
Requests for death records should be on SSA letterhead and must include name of decedent,
date of birth, and date of death. If exact date of death is unknown, provide a span
of years to be searched.
If SSA is paying for the record (i.e., requirements for SSA purchase in GN 00301.210 are met or verification required by enumeration policy), include a third party draft
payable to “New Mexico Vital Records.”
The parallel FO cannot follow up on any requests.
Can FO verify, certify, or obtain free copy of birth/death record? No
