You are missing deaths…and it’s not your fault
In 2011, the Social Security Administration dramatically decreased the amount of death data available via the Death Master File (DMF). PBI filled the data void by creating an industry-leading database comprised of the DMF along with other sources, including state records and obituaries.
However, the increase in data sources—coupled with the
complexity of those supplementary sources—makes finding and verifying deaths more challenging than ever for employers, fiduciaries, and third-party administrators—resulting in overpayments, fraud, and the accidental “killing” of people who aren’t dead!
Use PBI’s revolutionary approach to more accurately and efficiently identify deaths
Our proprietary solution combines artificial intelligence, integrated databases, and human expertise. Every week, CertiDeath compares your population list against the government’s master file and over 15,000 other data sources, including state and federal death records and obituaries. PBI’s proprietary algorithms—coupled with a team of experts—reviews all likely matches, confirming deaths on a timely basis. Our confirmed list of deaths tells you who is dead, eliminating the need to wade through obituaries to figure out who might be dead.
