Secure File Transfer Information
Please use our Secure File Transfer service to send and receive any confidential information such as SSN, credit card information, or financial records. Email, just like a postcard, is not secure or encrypted. When it passes through many points en route to its destination, the information can be exposed, just as something written on a postcard would never be considered private. Using our Secure File Transfer will keep your private information safe & secure. Below are instructions for how to set up and use our Secure File Transfer service.
