Notary Reference Manual, State-Specific Certificates Now Available Online For NNA Members

US-Ref-Manual-2012-13.jpgIf you’ve ever been in a bind because you ran out of Notary certificates, or needed quick information about your state’s Notary laws, the NNA has solved those problems with two new membership benefits. NNA members can now access online notarial certificates and an electronic version of the U.S. Notary Reference Manual via the website.

You can print certificates compliant with your state’s laws — including acknowledgments, jurats, copy certifications and others. The electronic forms are accessed through My NNA Profile. Log in with your member ID and password, select “NNA Notary Resources,” click on “Certificates,” choose the state and certificate required, and then print.

While you may want to keep a pad on hand of the most commonly used certificates, the online certificates become especially valuable for the forms that are seldom needed.

The U.S. Notary Reference Manual provides the notarization requirements for all U.S. states and jurisdictions in one easily accessible format. The electronic version contains the same information covered in the $79.95 printed version but it will be updated in real time with the latest revisions. It also eliminates the need for members to purchase biannual printed updates in order to stay current on industry regulations.

The online certificates and Notary Reference Manual options are adding value to NNA membership. Visit Become A NNA Member to learn about the many other benefits of membership in the National Notary Association.

I am the Deputy Recorder for the Recorder of Deeds office in Lancaster, PA. we purchased a book back in 2006 and were looking to buy a more recent version. We do not have a notary in this office. Is there any way for us to get a copy of the most recent U.S. Notary Reference Guide?

I am not a notary, but a producer of notary products. Is there a vehicle to have access to the online Notary Reference Manuel without being a notary?

I am the Chief Deputy Recorder of Deeds in Monroe County. We are not a member of the NNA and I was wondering how I can get a updated copy of the US Notary Reference Manual. The last issue we have is 2010-2011. This is a very useful tool for us.

I just took the 3 hr exam because my Notary expired. The test has a few glitches. Some of the questions I answered right were marked wrong. I just need to know if I passed because this has got me concerned. I cant find a grade anywhere. Thank you. Sherron Mccomas
