Forms and Written Information

You have a right to get written information in ways you can read and understand.

Tell people if you need them to read and explain a written document or complete a form for you.

You may also ask for documents in:

  • plain language that is easy to read and understand.
  • a larger font size.
  • an electronic version that you can use on your computer.

Ask if you need assistance to:

  • take notes at a meeting
  • write down an appointment date and time

Explain how you sign documents.  You might use an X, thumb print, or authorize someone to sign on your behalf.
