Submit a Tip

To qualify for an award under the Whistleblower Program, you must submit information regarding possible securities law violations to the Commission in one of the following two ways:

(1) By submitting a tip electronically through the SEC’s Tips, Complaints and Referrals Portal by clicking the button below.

(2) By mailing or faxing a Form TCR to:

SEC Office of the Whistleblower
100 F Street NE
Mail Stop 5631
Washington, DC 20549
Fax: (703) 813-9322

If you are submitting additional information relating to a previously submitted tip, please reference your original TCR submission number.

Important Notes

If you submit your information online through the SEC's Tips, Complaints and Referrals Portal, and would like to (1) be eligible to apply for a whistleblower award and/or (2) receive additional confidentiality protections (even if you do not wish to be considered for an award), you must answer "yes" to the question "Are you submitting this tip, complaint or referral pursuant to the SEC's whistleblower program?" on the "About You" page of the online questionnaire. You must also complete the whistleblower declaration at the end of the questionnaire.

The SEC treats all tips, complaints and referrals as confidential and nonpublic, and does not disclose such information to third parties, except in limited circumstances authorized by statute, rule, or other provisions of law. As a matter of practice, the whistleblower program provides additional confidentiality protections, consistent with the limitations on disclosure of information that could reasonably be expected to reveal the identity of a whistleblower set forth in Section 21F(h)(2) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 [15 U.S.C. § 78u-6(h)(2)] and Rule 21F-7 of the SEC's Whistleblower Rules [17 C.F.R. § 240.21F-7]. You should answer "yes" to the whistleblower program question if you wish to avail yourself of these additional confidentiality protections, even if you are not interested in being eligible for a whistleblower award.

Please note that if you choose to submit your information anonymously, i.e., without providing your identity or contact information, you must be represented by, and provide contact information for, an attorney in connection with your submission in order to be eligible for an award.
