PACER Administrative Account Registration

The PACER Service Center (PSC) has developed the PACER Administrative Account (PAA), a consolidated billing and online account management process for groups - such as law firms, non-profit organizations, educational or research institutions - to manage and pay for all charges associated with multiple PACER logins (i.e. PACER account) within their group at an organizational level.

NOTE: The PAA has replaced the master account.The PAA includes the following features:

  • Choose which firm accounts to roll into the PAA by adding existing logins.
  • Set up new logins for the firm PACER users and receive login information immediately.
  • Activate and deactivate individual logins, as needed.
  • Update user information for a login.
The PAA account is for administrative purposes only and does not provide access to case information.

In order to obtain a PACER Administrative Account login and password, complete the on-line PACER Registration Form . If you provide a credit card at the time of registration, you will receive an email with instructions on how to retrieve your password. If you do not provide a credit card, the password will be sent by U.S. mail to the address provided on the registration form. Please allow 7-10 days for mail delivery. For an expedited registration, provide a credit card during registration. For security reasons, passwords cannot be emailed, faxed, or given over the phone.

There is no registration fee. For your information, the Judicial Conference of the United States has established a fee to be collected for access to PACER. All registered agencies or individuals will be charged a user fee. Access to PACER systems will generate a $.10 per page chargeinfo.
