Wet Signature on Employment offer letters?

Hi There,

Does anyone know if it is a requirement to have a “wet signature” on offers letters in order to submit someone for their clearance?

I can’t seem to find any information or resources to see if electronic signatures are acceptable.

I appreciate any feedback people have to offer.


There is no legal requirement that I am aware of. I been faxing signatures for years on offer letters and many other documents. However, I don’t see any reason that the company that you are applying with couldn’t have their own requirement for wet signatures.

Nowadays, I don’t think there is a requirement to sign digitally plus Adobe Reader now let you signed by drawing. I used iPhone drawing message, then import the image to be my signature on Adobe Reader.

I only aware that mortgage paperwork that would require medallion signature guarantee…if you are not there in person at closing.
