Online Filing for Unit Investment Trusts Securities

The Secretary of State, Illinois Securities Department is now accepting online filings for unit investment trusts (UITs), through the North American Securities Administrators Association's (NASAA) Electronic Filing Depository (EFD) System.

Developed by NASAA, the EFD System was launched in 2014 and was initially used to facilitate the filing of Form D for Regulation D, Rule 506 offerings with state securities regulators and to pay related fees.

Illinois is among a growing number of states participating in the online filing of Form NF-UIT and the 48 states participating in the online EFD system for Form D. Future system enhancements are being considered to accommodate the electronic filing of Form NF-Mutual Funds and franchise filings.

The EFD website also enables the public to search and view, free of charge, filings made through EFD with state securities regulators. EFD is available at:
