Forgotten FATCA ID

I do not know my FATCA ID:

I do not know my Access Code:

Login credentials are shared by the Responsible Officer and up to five Points of Contact. You must be one of these authorized contacts to access the system.

Self Reset – First, check with one of the other authorized contacts to provide the access code.  If they are not available, you can reset the access code by answering the challenge questions provided during registration. Once you have created a new access code, notify the Responsible Officer and other Points of Contact that the access code was changed. 

Member - If you have not logged in to the system, contact your lead financial institution Responsible Officer or Points of Contact to obtain the initial temporary access code.

If you have already logged in and changed your initial temporary access code, follow the self reset instructions above for resetting your access code. 

Further assistance is available if needed.

If you mailed a paper registration form (Form 8957):  

Single, Lead, or Sponsoring Entity Financial Institutions - If you submitted a paper registration form, your login credentials will be sent via mail, once the registration is processed.  You will not be able to access the online registration system until you receive your login credentials.
