You need to request a packet of documents (example – PDF ) from Connecticut’s Vital Records Office to amend the gender marker on your birth certificate. You may contact the office by calling (860) 509-8000.
To apply for an updated Connecticut birth certificate, you will need to provide:
- notarized sworn affidavit requesting a replacement birth certificate that reflects your new gender
- notarized affidavit signed by qualified healthcare provider* that you have undergone surgical, hormonal or other treatment clinically appropriate for the purpose of gender transition
- copy of current government-issued photo ID
- payment of applicable fee(s)
*Qualified healthcare provider defined as a physician, an advanced practice registered nurse, or a psychologist.
Note: You must update your birth certificate with the state where you were born.
