Pender County is serious about protecting the identity of its citizens. Therefore, when ordering online, we will perform an ID verification process. This process will include a series of questions at the end of the ordering process. Your answers to these questions along with the information provided on the order form will aid our processors in making sure that your vital record is sent the appropriate address.
