WHO MUST SIGN APPLICATIONS

ISSUE DATE: 01/2018

Any member of an applicant household or his/her authorized representative MAY sign the application.

ApplyMN allows 1 person to sign the application electronically by typing his/her name in the signature field provided on the application. The electronic signature is a legally valid signature. Accept the electronic signature as entered into ApplyMN, if the name and spelling entered represents one of the allowable applicant signees in the household.

After you determine which applicants are members of a unit, there are certain people who MUST sign the application. When a Combined Application Form (CAF) is submitted, the signatures are required on page 8. When an ApplyMN application is submitted, obtain the additional signatures at the interview or send the applicant page 8. See the program provisions below for more specific information.
