VitalChek is the authorized external ordering source for fast, secure vital records processed directly with the issuing government agency at the lowest cost available online. That means, unlike other online services, your application won’t get lost in the mail or sent to another service for processing. We process all of our orders through secure online data connections with the issuing government agencies. We don’t have your personal data laying around and everything is done through secure, PCI compliant online data transmission with the government agencies directly. That also means we get to “skip the line” for processing ahead of mail in applications, making our service the fastest available (of course we can’t speed up the agencies themselves, but we do everything we can to keep things moving!).

No other vital records processing service can offer that. That’s what makes VitalChek different – and safer – than anything else out there. The only thing that is shipped (via USPS, UPS, or FedEx depending on which shipping method you choose) is your actual vital record itself, directly from the government agency to you. Now that’s secure!
