Multiple stimulus checks have helped Americans survive through COVID. Over 17 months after the economy initially shut down, the pandemic continues, with the Delta variant driving up case numbers among the unvaccinated. The rise comes amidst an improving economic condition and could slow the recovery. Meanwhile, some people are still waiting for their recovery to start. Unemployment continues to surpass pre-pandemic levels, even with job opportunities widely available in certain sectors. The federal unemployment bonus ends on Labor Day, and about half of all states have already ended it (or attempted to). Millions of people remain short of food and behind on bills. A fourth stimulus check could help those in need.
If you have a home in a region that has a high hurricane risk, you'd better check your homeowner's insurance policy for the details of its deductible for hurricane-related damage. This relatively new addition to insurance policies is not a flat dollar amount but a percentage of your home's value, and it can add significantly to the financial burden you bear if your home is damaged in a hurricane.
What does it mean to “notarize” a document?
When you submit insurance loss declarations or prepare various declarations or sworn statements for court, for example, there is a step in the process that requires a number of documents to be witnesses by a Notary (or “notarized”). Notarization is a fraud-deterrent process that helps to ensure a document is authentic and ultimately can be trusted. These documents may be relating to a private matter or related to the Provincial Government or international matter. Above all, the process ensures that a document is real, that the signature is valid, and that the signer has been identified and is acting with their own will and intention.
