If the spouse is not qualified to claim the death benefit because he/she is no longer a dependent, the dependent children under 21 or permanently incapacitated children will claim the benefit.
If there are no primary beneficiaries, meaning there are no dependent spouse and no children, the benefits can be claimed by the Secondary Beneficiaries.
As per the the documents needed posted on the DFA website, I brought with me an original NSO copy of my birth certificate and marriage contract issued by the Local Civil Registrar and duly authenticated by NSO.
But they told me that they wont accept it because they want a latest NSO copy.
We’re planning to have our first ever out of the country trip this year.
I already bought our tickets last January even though we don’t have our passports yet haha.
Here are the requirements for a supplemental report.
I thought I won’t be needing other local documents because I already have a SECPA copy of Ren’s birth certificate, but they still asked me to get a latest copy. Why does everybody wants a latest copy when the information they’ll be getting is still the same???
Because of my busy schedule, it’s only last April 25 when I had the chance to visit Manila City Hall.
After filling up some information there, they will ask you to go back after a week to get the corrected copy.
Overall, it took me almost a month to finish the process.
Registration: P310.00 Transmittal to NSO: P190.00 Certified True Copy of Birth Certificate: P50.00 Notary Public : P100.00 And worse, I need to return the next day to get it.
Imagine the time, effort and cost I spent for this. After finishing the supplemental report (which I think took me 2 weeks), I brought the documents to NSO/PSA office in Quezon City.
