Forgot Your Username/Password?

If you have forgotten the password for your PACER account, select the Reset Password option on the left menu. If you forgot your username, select Retrieve Username on the left.


Appellate Filers

Some appellate courts have converted to a Next Generation Case Management/Electronic Case Files (NextGen CM/ECF) system, while others use the legacy system. Check the court links page to see if your court has upgraded to NextGen.

If you have forgotten your username or password, select from the “Legacy” or “NextGen” options on the left menu. NOTE: There is no username retrieval option for legacy courts.


District or Bankruptcy Filer

Usernames and passwords for district and bankruptcy courts are managed and maintained by each court individually. The PACER Service Center does not have access to this data. If you are having problems with your filing credentials, including a forgotten password, you must contact the court directly. Check our list of CM/ECF Helpdesk Phone Numbers to find the appropriate phone number.
