Deceased Lists

deceased

No matter how carefully you track deceased individual information on your house file, every time you rent an outside list, you risk sending a promotion piece to someone recently deceased. Or worse, having one of your telemarketers attempt to contact someone who is deceased and by doing so cause unnecessary pain to their survivors. These references to someone they have lost can come across as insensitive to their survivors. It also wastes valuable marketing dollars!

We offer two Deceased Files:

1)    The Recently Recorded Deceased File (RRDF) contains recorded deaths for the past 24 months. 

2)   The Deceased Do Not Contact List (DDNC) contains opt-outs submitted by friends and family of the deceased.

 

Recently Recorded Deceased File (RRDF)

 

The Recently Recorded Deceased File is constructed from a variety of public and proprietary sources. It contains approximately 6.5 million addresses recorded during the previous 24 months and is refreshed monthly. Each month, new names will be added and names older than 24 months removed. It is the most accurate deceased list available and even includes prior addresses of the deceased when available. 

Due to data licensing agreements, subscribers will only be able to use each monthly file for 45 days – replacement files will be available monthly. The data cannot be accumulated month-to-month or year-to-year. Service providers cannot scrub customer lists unless their client also subscribes to the RRDF. (Service providers are defined as organizations that clean lists owned by others and may subscribe on behalf of these clients.)

 

USING THE FILE
The RRDF file is available to companies for the sole purpose of removing names and addresses from their marketing lists. The RRDF is not intended to be a complete record of all deaths for the 24-month period. It includes only available deceased information with addresses that meet our criteria.

The subscription fee of $3,895 covers a 12-month subscription period and includes monthly updates. Service organizations must purchase a subscription for each client serviced using the RRDF. You will receive a renewal notice prior to the subscription expiration date.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Deceased Do Not Contact List (DDNC)

 

Established since 2005, the Deceased Do Not Contact List (DDNC) is a consumer service for family members, friends or caretakers to remove the names of deceased individuals from commercial marketing and donor lists. Individuals register the deceased family member’s former address and name for suppression. We understand how difficult this process can be and the DDNC is available to companies for the sole purpose of removing names and contact information from their marketing lists. By subscribing to DDNC file, you are respecting consumers, building brand trust, and saving on mail costs.

 

How do I use the DDNC information found on the Preference Service files?
While the names of living individuals registered on DMAChoice, TPS or e-MPS will stay on the Preference Service files for ten years, the names of deceased individuals will remain on the files permanently. Data includes: name, address, phone, email address, date of death and age at time of death. A nominal yearly subscription fee is charged for this file.
