Lamola to launch deceased estate online registration system

The Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, Ronald Lamola, will on Tuesday launch the deceased estate online registration system.

The launch, which will take place at the Midrand Conference Centre, will simplify and modernise the work of government in the division.

According to the department, the system will give clients access to the masters’ services (a division that supervises the administration of deceased estates) on their mobile devices or computers without visiting the masters’ offices.

“The new online system is an innovative technology that signifies a paradigm shift in access to masters’ services, as it enables clients to transact masters’ services remotely from anywhere and at any time without the need to visit the masters’ offices, thus reducing queues and travel costs for members of the public,” said the department.

“The deceased estates online registration system is part of the department’s modernisation programme to provide efficient and convenient services to clients.”

Self-service and staff-assisted kiosks at all masters’ offices will also be put in place to assist the public to report estates online and efficiently.

“The office of the chief master has collaborated with stakeholders to conduct comprehensive testing of the system’s functionality and ease of use to ensure the system is user-friendly and efficient.

“The deceased estates online registration system is expected to revolutionise the masters’ services by providing a convenient and efficient way for clients to transact with the masters’ offices remotely.”
