New Online License Renewal Service Available for Oklahoma Funeral Directors and Embalmers

OKLAHOMA CITY - 9/11/2012

The Oklahoma Funeral Board recently released a new application allowing licensed funeral directors and embalmers to renew their licenses online at http://www.okfuneral.com beginning November 1, 2012.

“Implementing this system should provide a way to expedite the process for Funeral Directors and Embalmers to renew their licenses with the state,” said Oklahoma Funeral Board Past President, Jim Parks. “The new online license renewal process greatly reduces the amount of time required to administer the license renewal process.”

During the next license renewal cycle, the Oklahoma Funeral Board expects most funeral board and embalmer licensees to renew online as the new online system will save licensees time over the previously paper-intensive process. A typical online renewal takes about five minutes to complete, and licensees can print verification of the licensure renewal at the end of the process. In conjunction with their license renewal, a licensee will be able to enter and track continuing education credits, as well as update contact information. After the online renewal is complete and approved, the Oklahoma Funeral Board will update the applicant’s license record and mail a wallet card.

The online service was developed at no upfront cost to taxpayers and is a product of a partnership between the Oklahoma Funeral Board and OK.gov, Oklahoma’s Official Website, managed locally by Oklahoma Interactive.
