Vital Statistics Illinois Birth Certificate
Once you have given out this information, you are given a birth notification card. The card bears all the information given above. The birth notification card allows you to fill form A1. Once you have filled form A1, you are allowed to apply for the birth certificate. If you have a birth notification card from hospital, you should not fill form A1; you should fill form B1 instead.
There's a plethora of reasons to have a birth record on hand. School children cannot be enrolled without one. Enlisting into the army cannot be done without proper identification. Opening a bank account, obtaining a passport or visa card, getting a credit card at your bank, receiving an inheritance, and even being married can all be hampered without a birth record.
