How to Write a Notarized Financial Letter


A public notary, sometimes known as a notary public, is a state authorized official who provides a variety of services, such as officially recognizing documents or signatures. A notarized financial letter is a letter about finances that a person has signed before a public notary. Notaries do not serve to prove the validity of the information provided in a letter; they only serve to identify and officially record that the people signing are who they claim to be. Talk to a lawyer in your state if you need legal advice about drafting a financial letter for notarization.

Things You'll Need

  • Letter
  • Public notary
  • Write the letter. Your financial letter will depend on your circumstances, but should include all the information relevant to your needs. If, for example, you're requesting specific financial information from a company, include all the information the company needs to fulfill your request, such as your name, date of birth and the kind of information you're seeking.

  • Include a signature section. You must sign your letter in front of the public notary and the notary has to affix a seal to the letter near your signature that indicates she witnessed you sign it. Leave enough room at the bottom of the letter, at least a couple of inches, or extend the letter to a second page if needed.

  • Find a licensed notary. All states have notaries public who serve to officially recognize documents. You can usually find a notary at a bank or other financial institution who will notarize a document for you, but call ahead and ask if there is a public notary available.

  • Go to the notary's business. You must travel to where the notary works and bring a form of identification, such as a driver's license or passport. Once the notary proves your identity, you can sign the document. If you need someone else to sign, bring that person with his own appropriate identification.

  • Pay the notary's fee. Not all notaries require a fee, though you may have to pay a nominal amount for the notary services. This amount varies among states but is often less than $20.
