How It Works

The Process

Form inputs

1. Prepare your documents.

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

As a TIAA participant, ensure that your signature is on the form, whether through digital 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.
