Connecticut Birth Certificate Types

  • Full-Size Birth Certificate – Certified copies of birth certificates that may be used for practically all legal purposes, including proof of citizenship, school enrollment, personal identification, passports, social security, and employment. Birth certificates are available for all births that took place in Connecticut from July 1, 1897, to the present.
  • Wallet-Size Birth Certificate – This variation contains much less information than its full-size counterpart. It cannot be used as proof of identity for passport and driver’s license requirements.
