Due to COVID-19, the NNSA program staff are experiencing significant delays in receiving and processing PA requests.  We ask that PA requesters continue to submit their requests by mail or fax.  Submissions are still accepted, but responses will be delayed.

  • Include your social security number and your date of birth
  • Include any/all details that will assist in identifying the records you are requesting

Include your signature, address and/or email address and a good phone number where you can be reached.  This information is important as a Specialist may need to contact you regarding your submission.

In order to verify your identity for this request, please provide one of the following: 

  • notarized copy of the form
  • A copy of your Driver's License
  • A signed copy of a Power of Attorney
