Australian Death Notification Initiative

Australian Death Notification Initiative

A new government death notification initiative facilitates contact with multiple organisations using a single online notification. It’s intended to minimise the paperwork involved in estate administration. Once a notification is lodged, it is sent to all participating organisations who will then make contact to begin their processing.

Currently all state and territory governments are signed up to the service as are various banks, superannuation funds, utilities and councils. More organisations are joining all the time. The ATO is expected to join soon. You can also nominate an organisation to join. The link is Australian Death Notification Service
