Remote electronic notarization: Latest Executive Order extends temporary directives until July 6



Late Saturday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed Executive Order 202.38, effectively extending the temporary ability to utilize remote electronic notarization.

This order continues “the suspensions and modifications of law, and any directives, not superseded by a subsequent directive, made by Executive Order 202 and each successor Executive Order up to and including Executive Order 202.14, as contained in Executive Order 202.27 and 202.28 until July 6, 2020.”

Much like the governor’s past extension, which stretched modifications to June 6, this is another extension to July 6.

The possibility of temporary remote electronic notarization expiring in New York state had been a concern for many credit unions, and the most recent extension is a welcome development, New York Credit Union Association leaders say.

As previously reported, supporting legislation to enact remote notarization is among the Association’s advocacy priorities.
