If you want to spend your retirement years in a foreign country and continue to receive your pension and other benefits you have earned in the United States, you will need to provide an apostilled document confirming that you are alive. This document is most known as a Certificate of Life; however, it is also referred to as a Proof of Life Certificate, Certificate of Existence, or Certificate of Life. A Certificate of Life is often requested by foreign governments, insurance companies, and pension funds to prove the eligibility of pensioners or other beneficiaries residing in a foreign country for financial benefits. A Certificate of Life is a statement confirming that a person requesting this document is alive and can continue receiving the financial benefits. Generally, a Certificate of Life is valid for one to two years, though, some countries require that it is submitted every six months for benefits eligibility.

If you are a retired US citizen living in a foreign country, you will need to submit your Certificate of Life to the Embassy or Consular office to continue claiming your social security benefits. Your Certificate of Life must be attested with an apostille. Georgia Apostille can obtain an apostille on your Certificate of Life so that you can continue getting your pension and other benefits with no delays or interruptions. 

How to Obtain a Certificate of Life Apostille?

In the United States, a Certificate of Life can be prepared by a pubic notary. So, if you live in Georgia, you can visit the office of Georgia Apostille and our notary can prepare a statement confirming your existence. Make sure you bring a valid ID with you (a driver’s license or your national passport if your certificate of life will be used in a foreign country).  

Most notaries have a special affidavit they use for a Certificate of Life, but the wording on it can be flexible. The main idea of a Certificate of Life is to confirm that an individual was alive and present at the time of document’s creation. A Certificate of Life must be signed, dated, and stamped by a notary public and if needed to be attested with the notarial affidavit. 

An apostille on a Certificate of Life is always processed in the same state where your document was notarized. So, if Georgia Apostille notarized your Certificate of Life, it will be attested with the apostille from the state of Georgia. If you have your Certificate of Life drafted and notarized in the state of Nevada, your document will be apostilled in Nevada. 

An apostille on a Certificate of Life can only be processed if your document will be used in a member-country of the Hague Apostille Convention.  If you need to present your Certificate of Life in a country that has not signed the Hague Apostille Treaty, your document will require a different authentication process involving certification by the United States Department of State and legalization through the Embassy/Consulate.

Georgia Apostille can obtain apostille or legalization on Certificates of Life issued by any of the 50 US states and the district of Columbia.
