My aunt and uncle divorced about 7 years ago. Out of the blue, my uncle's step daughter from a previous message asked for my aunt's death certificate. She passed away about 3 years ago. My uncle is in bad health, and I want to make sure he isn't getting taken advantage of. The step daughter has no blood relation to my uncle or my aunt. He also did not adopt her. Her mom already passed away. When I asked why they were trying to get the death certificate, she said it was for my uncle's DD214. He wouldn't need my aunt's death certificate to get that. What reasons do you think she is trying to get the certificate? I don't think the step daughter would be eligible for any benefits. It just seemed odd. I was a little offended, since we haven't quite gotten over my aunt's death yet.
