Limited Access Death Master File (LADMF)


Our Limited Access Death Master File (LADMF) Subscription pricing is increasing the coming Fiscal Year 2023, beginning October 1, 2022.

NTIS strives toward excellence in customer service and hopes these changes will grow the level of resources toward our LADMF Subscription program to increase support for our customers.

Biennially, in accordance with the requirements of OMB Circular A-25 Revised (User Charges) and in accordance with Department of Commerce policy contained in Chapter 11 (Fees and Revenues) of the Accounting Principles and Standards Handbook. As a result of this review, NTIS provides assurance that a) existing user charges are adjusted to reflect unanticipated changes in costs or market values; and b) that all agency programs have been reviewed to determine whether fees should be assessed for Government services or the user of Government goods or services.

All Subscriptions paid and processed before September 30, 2022, will be honored with the current pricing. NTIS greatly appreciates your continued business and support through this change. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team at Subscriptions@ntis.gov.

The National Technical Information Service (NTIS) established a certification program for those seeking access to the Limited Access Death Master File (LADMF) pursuant to Section 203 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 (Pub. L. 113-67). Section 203 authorizes NTIS to charge fees sufficient to cover the costs associated with the certification program. The associated regulations can be found at 15 C.F.R Part 1110 et seq.

The certification program limits access to LADMF information to those persons certified under the program. Certified persons, also called Subscribers, must have a legitimate fraud prevention interest, or have a legitimate business purpose pursuant to a law, governmental rule, regulation, or fiduciary duty in order to be certified under the program.
