Updating a CM/ECF account

Filers must update their own accounts. Do not send the Court notices of change of address or change of name.


To file in the Second Circuit using NextGen CM/ECF a filer must have an upgraded PACER account. That account must be linked to an existing Second Circuit CM/ECF appellate filer account, or the filer must apply for filing privileges in the Second Circuit. Instructions for creating and upgrading accounts to file using NextGen CM/ECF are here.


NextGen CM/ECF allows public filers to use a single user name and password to access both PACER information and file in CM/ECF. All filer accounts are specific to individual users. Filers make all changes in account information (change of address, change of payment method, etc.) using PACER's Manage My Account function.


A Second Circuit filer may access PACER's Manage My Account function by going directly to the PACER Service Center website or by logging in to NextGen CM/ECF and clicking Utilities > Update My Account on the welcome screen.
