Deceased Do Not Contact List

Getting marketing calls is exhausting. Getting unwanted marketing calls and mail for someone who has passed can be even more stressful. Here’s how to stop these types of marketing calls and emails.

What is the Deceased Do Not Contact List?

The Deceased Do Not Contact (DDNC) List is a list that is used by companies and nonprofit organizations for the purpose of knowing who to contact and who not to contact with their marketing efforts. By adding the name of a deceased individual to this list, companies know to remove that name, address, email, and phone number from their marketing records. If you’re trying to find out how to stop mail for a deceased person, this is the form to fill out.

How long does it take for the Deceased Do Not Contact List to kick into effect?

The DDNC list is released to organizations every month. The Data & Marketing Association (DMA) estimates that it typically takes around 3 months for marketing attempts to stop once someone has been added to the DDNC.

What kind of information do I need to sign up for the Deceased Do Not Contact List?

You will need to provide the following information regarding the deceased:

  • Their full name
  • Their address (you can add multiple addresses)
  • Their phone number (optional)
  • Their email addresses (optional)
  • The month/year of death
  • Their age at the time of death

In addition to information about the deceased, you will need to provide the following information about yourself:

  • Your full name
  • Your relationship to the deceased
  • Your email address

Can anyone sign up for the Deceased Do Not Contact List?

Anyone can add a deceased person to the DDNC; you do not have to be an executor or another legal authority to add a deceased person’s information to the DDNC.

How do I sign up for the Deceased Do Not Contact List?

Signing up for the DDNC is easy and will only take a few minutes. Here are the steps to do so:

  1. Gather all the information you’ll need in order to fill out the form.
  2. Head to the DMA’s website and fill out the Deceased Do Not Contact Registration form.
  3. Submit the form.

After you submit the form, it may take a few months for the marketing attempts to stop.
