Kittitas County, WA -
The Kittitas County Public Health Department (KCPHD) is now offering vital records online. KCPHD has partnered with Permitium to offer birth certificates and death certificates online via the KCPHD website at www.co.kittitas.wa.us/health. Only vital records from Washington State are available. Birth certificates from 1907 to present are available and death certificates from 2014 to present are available to be requested online to qualified applicants.
To request vital records, individuals must be considered qualified applicants. For example, a parent or guardian will be required to upload photo identification onto the website. The website will accept a debit or credit card and the records can be picked up at KCPHD or mailed directly to the applicant. Records ordered online will be processed within one to three business days. Individuals are still welcome to come into KCPHD and order records directly.
With the new change, there is a $4.00 processing fee. That fee goes directly to Permitium to maintain the online service. The change is an effort to make access to vital records easier for people in Kittitas County. The change means that individuals do not have to come into KCPHD to receive their requested records, or if individuals prefer to pick up records at KCPHD the records will be printed and available for pick up.
For more information about qualified applicants, fees, or more information on vital records, visit KCPHD’s website at www.co.kittitas.wa.us/health or call 509-962-7515.
