Clarke-Decatur County USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director Joyce Frost wants to inform producers the correct Farm Service Agency signature policy. Using the correct signature when doing business with FSA can save time and prevent a delay in program benefits. The following are signature guidelines:
• Spouses may sign documents on behalf of each other for FSA and CCC programs in which either has an interest, unless written notification denying a spouse this authority has been provided to the county office.
• Spouses shall not sign on behalf of each other as an authorized signatory for partnerships, joint ventures, corporations, or other similar entities.
For additional clarification on proper signatures, contact the Clarke-Decatur County FSA office at 641-342-2162.
