For your protection, some states require you to sign the LPOA in the presence of a notary. A notary or Notary Public is a public official that is designated to certify and witness the signing of documents. If the LPOA form that we provided you indicates a notary is required, take the 2 LPOA forms along with your government issued photo ID and sign the form in the presence of the notary. The notary may charge a small fee for this service. Check with your local UPS or Fedex stores, or AAA (membership may be required) to find out if they offer notary services.
