PREPARE

What you need

In order to have the best experience possible, please come prepared to your online notary meeting. You will need:

  • A single PDF of all the pages of your form. You have the option to digitally complete it after upload. 
  • All signatures that don't require notarization prior to uploading
  • One form of ID. Here's a list of acceptable IDs.
  • The last four (4) digits of your U.S. Social Security number
  • A strong internet connection and a valid email address
  • An iPhone, iPad, Android device or computer with video and audio capabilities
  • 15 minutes to complete your online notarization
  • A credit card to pay the $25 notarization fee
Upload signed form to Notarize

 

THE PROCESS

How it Works

  • 1. Download and save your TIAA form that required notarization. Upload your form to Notarize in a single PDF file.

    Ensure that your signature is on the form, whether through DocuSign (electronic) or a physical signature. If you need to sign the form manually, you will need to scan and save the document in the PDF file format. Be sure to include all pages – not just the page that requires notarization.

  • 2. Verify your identity. 

    Notarize uses patent-pending forensic analysis to verify government-issued photo IDs and passports. When prompted, you'll capture images of your photo ID using the video capabilities on your computer or phone and then answer a few questions. Notarize will confirm your identity in seconds.

  • 3. Connect with a live notary agent.

    Connect with a licensed electronic notary public over live video to sign your form. The Notarize agent will confirm your identity, witness your signature, and assist you throughout the process.

  • 4. Receive your signed document(s). Finalize your forms and return them to TIAA.
