Where on the internet can I find the SS death index?

Asked by an anonymous Tumblr user.

The Social Security Administration Death Master File is a record of deaths reported to the Administration.

The Death Master File is not available online from the Social Security Administration. You can purchase it from the National Technical Information Service.

Other websites offer the Death Master File, but these are not endorsed by the Social Security Administration. The Social Security Administration cannot confirm if these websites are either accurate or current.
