Search Tips


Name Search

  • Start with LAST NAME and FIRST NAME Search.*

Can’t find your name?

  • Try LAST NAME and First Initial of FIRST NAME
  • Have Two First/Last Names or a Hyphenated name? (e.g. Jane Doe-Smith)
  • 1. Try both names together with hyphen (e.g. Doe-Smith)
    2. Try both names together with a space (e.g. Doe Smith)
    3. Try both names together without a space (e.g. DoeSmith)

  • Do you use a nickname? (e.g. Patrick to Pat or Anthony to Tony)
  • Is your name frequently misspelled or you have documentation in which the account title was spelled incorrectly? Try the misspelling.

*Spelling, spaces, and punctuations may affect search result.


Refine Your Search

Use the Advanced Name Search if your first search doesn’t work. You can filter the results by including the city.

  • Try LAST NAME and FIRST NAME* (and any variations of) and CITY**
  • Sometimes cities will be abbreviated (ex: Brooklyn to BKLYN)
  • Sometimes cities will have different variations (ex: New York City, Manhattan, NYC)
  • Be specific: Try narrowing search (ex: try the specific boroughs of New York City- Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island)
  • Include current and previous addresses in the city search.

*Spelling, spaces, and punctuations may affect search result

**If your search produces a lot of results, filter the results by including the city.


Claims for Organizations
