It is easy to add your signature to a PDF document.  All you need to do is follow these steps:

Scan your signature to your computer or take a picture of it with your phone.  Check out the Microsoft Help Page for How Create and Insert a Handwritten Signature.  Pay attention only to the first section, and save your signature for later.

Download Adobe Acrobat Reader:  If you do not already have Adobe on your computer, you will need to download the free version.  You can find the download information here: 

Once you have Adobe downloaded, open the document you need to complete and sign.

On the right side of the screen, click on Fill & Sign.  This will allow you to click on the fields you need to complete on the form.  Complete all of the required information on the form.

Once you have completed the form, it's time to add your signature.  Look for the signature button at the top of the page.  Click on the button and select Add Signature.


Do not type your signature - select Image.  Once you select Image, it will bring up a dialog box for you to locate your signature.  Upload your signature, and you will see it populate into the box.  Click Apply.


Your signature is now available for you to apply it to the document.  Locate the signature line and click.  Your signature should now be inserted in the document.  Click the save button.

You now have a signed PDF document ready to go!
