Go to any title office and apply for a Surviving Spouse Certificate of title. Some counties may require a certificate of death to process, so telephone the office prior to you visiting. You may apply for up to 2 vehicles on a surviving spouse benefit and the estimated value of both cannot exceed $ 40,000.00. The surviving spouse can only transfer passenger vehicles, a 3/4 ton truck or smaller, or a motorcycle into their name. Commercial vehicles, motor homes, and recreational vehicles are not covered. For additional information please contact the Lucas County Probate Court at 419-213-4775.
