Applying for an Attestatie de vita (certificate of life) in the Netherlands

Does an organisation outside the Netherlands (e.g. a pension fund) need proof that you are alive? Then you need an Attestatie de vita (certificate of life). You can apply for this at your municipality.

This is how it works in your (future) place of residence

Your (future) place of residence falls under the Municipality of Woerden.

Request proof of 'being alive'

If you have to prove to a Dutch authority that you are alive, you will need proof of 'being alive'. If it concerns a foreign body, you need a attestatie de vita. You request your proof online with DigiD. Or you can make an appointment with the municipality.
