It Starts Here

The first step in seeking assistance during your hardship is the completion of the Release of Information (ROI). This document gives the Customer Assistance Specialists permission to share your account balances and specific account information with our community partners to resolve the financial hardship.

The form can be completed and signed digitally here. A copy of a valid photo ID must be attached to the form.
