How to Obtain 5500 Signing Credentials

Close Help Page |

The Department of Labor (DOL) requires that 5500 Return/Reports be electronically filed and signed via EFAST2. Signers must register for filing credentials via the EFAST2 Registration screen, which will act as the signature.

Once this process is complete, you can continue to use the UserID and PIN provided by the DOL in future years. If a different person signs the 5500 filing in a future year, that person will have to register to receive their own signing credentials. In addition, more than one person may obtain credentials to sign a 5500 Return/Report if more than one person may actually sign the filing.
