TIPS FOR USING THE RECORD SEARCHUse Your Case Number
The quickest way to find your record is to enter your case number. The record search feature is a powerful tool to find your records but can be overwhelming for first time users. If you don't have that handy you can enter your name.
Common Names Should Refine Search with Date of Birth
If you have a common name, there will be lots of entries. To refine the search further, use the date of birth field to narrow your search. Make sure to hit enter or use the filter icons next to the box.
Use "Contains" for Filter Action
There are several actions in the filter. The help on the tool goes into detail. However, for most purposes the "contains" option is most useful. So, when in doubt of a filter action to take, use the "contains" option.
