Retrieve a Document

Who can retrieve an original document from the depository?

Every document in the National Will Depository has a lodging form from the person that deposited the document specifying who is able to retrieve the original document or a copy. To obtain an original document or a copy you must be eligible for receipt under our instructions in the lodging form or by law.

The principal may always recover their own document stored in the National Will Depository. Upon proof of death, unless otherwise specified, the original or a copy of depository documents are available for release.

The cost to retrieve a document from the National Will Depository is $30.00 plus shipping. We can normally ship the requested document in 1-2 business days and have several shipping options available to fit your needs.
