We received another complete document in the mail yesterday from Oklahoma. Why OK, you ask? Well... if it ever comes up for you... If you have to get a notarized item certified, you have to go through the state the notary is registered. Our life insurance is through a company in OK, and we had to get a letter with our insurance info.
It costs $25 per document to get a certification from OK. $20 per document for VA. And $2 per document for IL. I don't know why there is such a disparity, but IL pretty much rocks, since we sent about 20 documents in for certification for $40 total. $25 x 20 is a MUCH bigger number.
Don't tell IL they could be charging more, ok? :)
