1403.05 Unsigned Applications - An unsigned application received by the agency is not considered an application for processing purposes. All unsigned applications shall be promptly returned to the applicant for signature.

The entire application shall be returned to allow the applicant to review his/her answers prior to certifying under penalty of perjury that all answers are correct and complete to the best of their knowledge. A cover letter must be attached to the returned application explaining the need to sign the application and return to the agency for processing.

If the originally unsigned application is returned with a valid signature, the application date for processing purposes is the date the returned application is received by the agency if received on a business day. If the application is received on the weekend or a holiday, the application date is the next following business day.

Note: An online application may not be submitted without a signature. Therefore, there should never be an online application received without a signature. The signature may be invalid (see subsection 1403.06), but there should always be a signature.
