Can't you have the cards notarized? A notary public just puts his seal on a statement that the person before him has sworn that the info is true.

Dig him up and take him to the closest notary. Just be sure to cover the hole while you are gone so as not to take on any additional liability. It might be best to do this at night. I just couldn't resist this one earlydean and mean no harm. For what it's worth I would rely on the board to do the right thing in this situation.

Do I understand correctly that you were working with him during that time? If so, perhaps you can sign for his time, and have your own signature notorized. What, exactly, are the requirements for who has to sign for the time?

I would think that someone,wife or family member, had to close out his business affairs and would possibly have power of attorney to sign for him.

Power of attorney "dies" with the person it covers.

Hal,
I did not realize that. Will post a related topic in the business section and set an appointment to see my attorney in the very near future regarding this!

Hi,
Maybe you can get a copy of the weekly paycheck STUB and/or W2 and turn that in?

Social security can verify wages.

I would try and document everything if possible.

They might give it to him based on his effort to prove the hours!

Hope that helps.

Good luck!
