Electronic Submission of Documents:


We are improving the way documents are submitted electronically to our office. The new portal is called 13documents.com. Nancy has contracted with this site to allow secure, more detailed handling of your case documents. For example, your documents will be encrypted from the time you send them over the web, which avoids unencrypted transport of sensitive information for your clients through regular email. It also creates a history record with a date/time stamp for each document you upload so you can return to the site to review what you have sent previously. There are many more detailed options to choose from to categorize your documents, rather than the 4 options you have had in the past.
For this specific office we are accepting the following documents:

Pension & Retirement Income
Contribution Income Letters
