This new online application interactively guides users through the information needed to complete their applications, submits the application directly to DOL, and provides users with a PDF copy of their submission.

    The online tool eliminates the need to submit paper applications and offers the added speed and security of online submission. Users who prefer to submit paper applications by mail may continue to do so.
