Can I notarize a document over a certain financial value?

Am I allowed to notarize an annuity document with a value over $5000? — C. A., Illinois

Yes. Illinois Notaries are authorized to notarize signatures on documents regardless of their type (in this case an annuity document) or monetary value. The document must have notarial wording on it, or the signer must instruct the notary which certificate attachment to use.  

Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. – The Editors
