The TxEVER Project


The Vital Statistics Section (VSS) introduces a new registration system called the Texas Electronic Vital Events Registrar (TxEVER). TxEVER replaces the legacy Texas Electronic Registrar (TER) systems, allowing Texas to become one of the first states to embrace a fully integrated vital records system. The TxEVER system went live on January 1, 2019 to support all vital events operations, including reporting, registration, and amendments of births and deaths. 

This page provides you with the tools for a successful transition to TxEVER. 

For TxEVER Support, 

Special Announcements:

3) Attention all TxEVER users: If your password is not working or you never received temporary password, TER user accounts have migrated to TxEVER. Contact your local administrator to reset your password if you did not receive emails with your user account information. You can also go to the login screen and click “Forgot password.” Enter your TER username and email, then a temporary password will be sent to you. Only do this once.

4) Attention all TxEVER users: If you do not have all the rights or locations you need, submit a help desk form to the help-TxEVER@dshs.texas.gov. Be sure to indicate:

  • if you are a local administrator
  • what your correct location name is
  • what abilities you are missing
  • which usernames are affected at your location
  • if you are a local registrar who needs to be a supervisor for fee paper voids

5) Attention admins for Physicians that certify death certificates: Follow this link for instructions to fix invalid PINS for Physicians.

It is not possible to print pre-stamped AOP forms before collecting signatures and uploading them into the system.
