– Fillable PDF Form Instructions

Some of the PDF forms on this site are “fillable” on your computer. This means you can complete the form on your computer by typing information into the form’s fields. Then you can print the completed form, sign it as required and submit it as you would normally via mail, fax scan or in person.

Please note: Although you can fill in a form while it is displayed within your browser, we strongly recommend that you do not do so. Please download the form and open it in Adobe Acrobat to complete.

How to fill out a fillable PDF

Follow these steps to complete a PDF fillable form

  1. Download and install Adobe Reader software

To access, view, download, complete and print fillable forms you will need to use the latest version of Adobe Reader. Download Adobe Acrobat Reader for free.

  1. View and save the form

Click the link to the form you would like to fill out. When the form is open, click the download icon (or save icon depending on your version).
You might be given the opportunity to choose where to save your PDF form. Please make note of where you are saving it so you can open it in a later step. If you are not presented the opportunity to choose, it will be saved to your “Downloads” folder.

  1. Open and fill out the form

Find the PDF file you saved in the last step and double click it to open. Then fill out the form.

  1. Print the PDF form
