Unfortunately, there may be a time when you come across the profile of a colleague, classmate, or loved one who has passed away. If this happens, we can close that person's account and remove their profile on your behalf.

We'll need you to gather:

  • The member's name
  • The URL to their LinkedIn profile
  • Your relationship to them
  • Member's email address
  • Date they passed away
  • Link to obituary
  • Company they most recently worked at

To start this process, please answer some questions about the person who has passed away by filling out this form.

After you fill out this form, it will be automatically sent to us for review and we'll be in touch.
