I9 Verification Instructions


Since Form I9 requires specific documents to be reviewed in person, a notary will act as an authorized representative to validate the documents you present. The I9 does not need to be notarized by the notary, just completed. In fact, I9 forms cannot include a notary stamp. You will need to schedule a time to meet with a notary to complete this requirement. More information on working with your assigned notary is below as Chewy has partnered with mobile notaries to provide this service for you.  
 
Chewy has sent you a blank I9 Form and a prepaid return envelope to complete with the notary, which was included in one of the three boxes you received with your physical equipment. This task must be completed with a notary, within 48 hours of your first day and returned to Chewy successfully to complete your onboarding. 

Steps for you to complete the I9 Employment Verification through a notary:
