Need a Notary to Notarize

Insurance Documents


Yes, some insurance documents do require notarization. This is done to prevent fraud by verifying the identity of the person signing the document and ensuring they understand what they are signing.

Here are some examples of insurance documents that might need notarization:

  • Affidavits: These are sworn statements that can be used to support an insurance claim.

  • Proof of loss forms:  These forms detail the extent of damage or loss suffered by a policyholder.

  • Changes to beneficiary designations: This ensures the intended person receives the payout on a life insurance policy.

It's important to note that not all insurance documents require notarization.  The specific requirements will vary depending on the insurance company and the type of policy.

Here's what you can do:

  • Contact your insurance company.  They can tell you definitively which documents, if any, need to be notarized.

  • Look for information on your insurance company's website.  They may have a section on claims or policy changes that explains the notarization requirements.

If you do need to get an insurance document notarized, you can find a notary public in your area by searching online or contacting your local bank or library.  Here are a couple of resources that can help you find a notary near you:
