Register of Mailing Addresses of Federal and State Governmental Units
Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 5003(e) provides for the Clerk of the United States Bankruptcy
Court to maintain a register of mailing addresses for federal and state governmental units.
To be listed in the Register, an appropriate official of the governmental unit must complete and submit
a Request for Listing for each address the governmental unit wishes to appear in the Register. The
completed form must include the governmental unit's official name, its complete mailing address for
service of process, a telephone number available for users of the Register who may have questions
concerning the information listed, the date on which the request was submitted to the Court, and the
title and signature of the requesting official.
Governmental units may have multiple addresses listed in the Register. However, those requesting the
listing of multiple addresses must submit a separate and complete Request for Listing for each address,
and must include a brief statement, subject to the approval of the Clerk, explaining to the users of the
Register the circumstances in which each address is applicable for service of process.
A governmental unit whose address is already listed in the Register may update its information at any
time by submitting a new and complete Request for Listing. The Clerk shall publish a current Register
annually on each January 2nd, and may update the Register more often as deemed appropriate by the Clerk.
