Sign your ING documents electronically
The electronic signature: fast, easy and legally recognized
The electronic signature
It is possible for ING's private and professional customers to sign electronically.
An electronic (or digital) signature is the digital version of a handwritten signature. This electronic signature guarantees the content of a document and the identity of the signatory using a signing certificate.
The electronic signature avoids the use of paper and facilitates the exchange of documents.
Only in exceptional cases is ING still required to request a paper document with a handwritten signature.
The accepted electronic signatures
Only qualified electronic signatures have the same legal value as a handwritten signature and can be used for ING documents.
There are several trusted service providers established in Belgium which offer services for signing a document with a qualified electronic signature. These service providers are included on an official list (Trusted List).
Signing with your Belgian identity card
The signature with eID + PIN is an example of a qualified electronic signature.
With the Adobe Reader application you can sign with your identity card. To be able to create a signature and use it, you must have
