Before filing with the SEC, an individual or company must fill out a Form ID. The Form ID is no longer accepted as a paper form and must be filled out electronically.
The EDGAR Filer Management website allows an individual or company to register to file with the SEC using Form ID. Upon acceptance of your Form ID, you will receive an e-mail that contains your unique CIK as well as your passphrase. Using your CIK and passphrase, you will be able to create your EDGAR access codes and use EDGAR to begin filing to the SEC. The EDGAR Filer Management website may also be used to regenerate your EDGAR access codes. Use the “Press Here to Begin” button on this website to start the process of filling out your Form ID.
Hours: 6:00AM to 10:00PM Eastern Time, Monday through Friday
Primary EDGAR Filing Website
The primary EDGAR Filing Website is used to submit the majority of SEC EDGAR forms. Note that, while you may submit EDGAR forms via this website, and the EDGARLink Online application provides the tools to fill out the form data for each EDGAR form, you must prepare your primary document and exhibits using your own software prior to filing. The SEC does not provide tools for creating or editing HTML, ASCII, XBRL, PDF or image files.
The EDGAR Filing Website allows an individual or company to submit most EDGAR forms to the SEC. Forms that are not submitted via this portal are Form Types 3, 3/A, 4, 4/A, 5, 5/A, D or D/A.
Hours: 6:00AM to 10:00PM Eastern Time, Monday through Friday*
* Note that the EDGAR System accepts filings between 9:00am and 5:30pm Eastern Time. Filings submitted to the EDGAR System after 5:30pm Eastern will have a filing date of the following business day.
Online Forms Management
The Online Forms Management Website is used to submit certain XML forms to the SEC. Note that, while you may create and edit ownership forms as well as Regulation D forms, the Online Forms applications does not provide tools to prepare HTML, PDF, or ASCII exhibits. You must use your own software to create any necessary exhibits, such as a Power of Attorney, prior to filing. Using the Online Forms Management Website, you can then assemble your filing and complete the ownership form.
All EDGAR Filing Websites are unavailable during federal holidays. You will not be able to access or log into any of these sites or submit any filings on a federal holiday. The EDGAR System will not receive, process, or accept filings on federal holidays. The SEC mailroom that receives paper filings is also closed on federal holidays. EDGAR filings that have already been posted to the SEC’s website will remain accessible on holidays.
If a filing deadline lands on a holiday, the filing is due the next business day.
