As a notary public, there are additional professional opportunities available to add to the General Notary Work you perform on a day-to-day basis. I-9 Authorizations require verifying the identity of a person. They, however, do not require notarization. Companies often seek notaries to perform them. Although performing an I-9 Authorization is under the scope of verifying identity, this type of verification is not considered a notarial act.
Performing an authorization can take from five minutes (if only in paper form) up to around 30 – 45 minutes (for online or mixed online/paper performances). Today’s authorization took 30 minutes to complete because of the complexity involving multiple types of actions by both signer and notary. When performing your duties to complete the I-9 Authorization, you, the professional, are known as an Authorized Representative. The company thinks of you as a representative of their company for said verification.
Today’s assignment was completed at The Village Grind, 1263 Pendleton Street, Greenville, SC 29611.
