Mortascreen is one of the leading mortality suppression files in the UK, which is updated monthly with over 40,000 mortalities. Records are predominantly sourced from the Probate Registry, funeral directors and insurance companies as well as third party data contributors.
When a file is cleansed against Mortascreen any records that are matched as deceased will be suppressed (removed) from the file, or, if the client so wishes, flagged. When a record is flagged by Mortascreen it remains in the file allowing the client to take any other appropriate action they feel necessary.
Whilst Mortascreen is ideal for marketing purposes, for deceased fraud prevention we utilise its related dataset, Halo, coupled with an enhanced version of our official Death Index database to create the most comprehensive mortality screening solution in the UK – Deathscreen. The combination of Halo records, the official Death Index and our sophisticated intuitive software creates dual-tiered mortality screening – checking for mortalities by name and date of birth as well as name and last known address.
