Changing Your Password

- After logging into the electronic filing system, click Utilities on the main menu bar, then click Maintain Your Login/Password.
- Remove the asterisks from the password field, and enter your new password. Passwords must be at least eight characters long and include both uppercase and lowercase alphabetic characters and at least one digit or special character (for example, 0-9, @, #, $, %, &, *, +).
- Click Submit.
- Click Logout. You may now log back in using your new password. Please record your new password and keep it in a safe place.
