DocuSign and Adobe Sign

Where you are unable to get a wet signature or utilise digital approval, Sunsuper will accept digital signatures via DocuSign and AdobeSign. 

We accept digitally signed forms via DocuSign and Adobe Sign, however we do require the below steps to be completed before we can process the request.  

  1. When submitting a request to your client, it is important that this request is sent to the members current email on file. The correct email on file must show on the audit trail that accompanies the digital signature.
  2. Once the client has signed the form digitally, the digitally signed form must be sent through with the audit trail that accompanies the signature. The audit trail must show the signature was sent to the email the member holds on file. If this is not done, it may delay the processing timeframe.
  3. When the PDF documents are opened in Acrobat Reader DC, it must display a green tick at the top of the page, confirming that the signature is valid.
  1. Please ensure the signed document submitted via Adobe sign includes the link on the signature. This will ensure that we are able to verify the signature.
  2. When submitting a request to your client, it is important that this request is sent to the members current email on file. The correct email on file must show on the audit trail that accompanies the digital signature.
  3. The Transaction ID from the audit trail associated with the signature must return as “verified” for Sunsuper to accept this form
