Coronavirus (COVID-19) Office Impact

​The Secretary of State's office is currently closed to walk-in services. Governor Andy Beshear has currently restricted State Capitol building access to all persons other than essential staff. Customers may experience some delays, however, most normal business operations will continue to be available. We appreciate your patience as we work to provide the best level of customer service as possible, as well as take health precautions for staff and members of the public. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly via phone at (502) 564-3490.

​UCC FILINGS

All UCC filings should be filed through our website electronic filing system. In the event that the collateral description is too lengthy for the 8000-character limit, we are permitting UCC Filings to be mailed to our office or faxed to 502-564-5687 with payment information. For filings that are faxed, once processed, we will fax or email the file-stamped acknowledgment back to the remitter. The UCC filing will receive the date the fax is received in the office. Although we will try to process as quickly as possible, it may take up to the three (3) day statutory deadline.
