Obtaining a Digital Signature for Signing Form LM-2

Union officers must sign their Labor Organization Annual Report (Revised Form LM-2) electronically using a digital signature. Revised Form LM-2 must be submitted to OLMS electronically.

To obtain a digital signature, you must purchase an ACES (Access Certificates for Electronic Services) digital certificate.

An ACES certificate can be purchased through Digital Signature Trust (DST). If you have any questions or problems with the purchasing procedure, contact DST's Help Desk directly at 1-888-339-8904.

The certificate purchased can be either an individual or a business certificate.

To obtain an individual digital signature, you must provide the following information:

  • Name
  • E-mail address
  • Home address and phone number
  • Social Security Number (SSN)
  • Date of Birth (DOB)
  • Driver's License Number or State ID
  • Credit Card number (This must be a credit card issued in your name and for which the billing address is the same as your home address.)

To obtain a business digital signature, you must provide the following information:

  • Name
  • Job title
  • E-mail address
  • Organization/Company name, state of incorporation and D-U-N-S Number (if available)
  • Entity type, and
  • Organization/Company mailing address and phone number

Please note that you can only obtain an individual digital signature if you have a credit card in your name with your home address as the billing address. However, you can obtain a business digital signature without a personal credit card. A business digital signature can be purchased with a union or other credit card or with a faxed purchase order from the union.

For additional information and FAQs on obtaining a digital signature, please visit the OLMS Digital Signature page.
