The funeral service will also take the body of the deceased from the hospital and take care of the arrangements. The death certificate will be issued by the Registry Office within 30 days.
  • The cash that the deceased had deposited in the hospital's vault becomes the subject of the inheritance proceedings.
  • You are entitled to a time off work with wage compensation under the Work Code if you are related to the deceased or if you are the funeral's commissioner.
