Having Trouble Viewing or Downloading a Form?
If you are using Firefox or Internet Explorer: Disable the built-in PDF viewer so you can view and fill out forms using Adobe Reader. To learn how to disable the built-in PDF viewer, read this Adobe guide for Firefox and this Adobe guide for Internet Explorer.
If you are using Chrome: Disable the built-in PDF viewer by typing "chrome://plugins" in the address bar. Then scroll down to Chrome PDF Viewer plug-in and select the "Disable" checkbox.

If you’ve already disabled the built-in PDF viewer and continue to have problems viewing or filling out a form, please report technical issues to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Using a Screen Reader
For the best experience, we recommend using Job Access with Speech (JAWS) or NonVisual Desktop Access (NVDA). We test our forms using JAWS.

Converting PDF Forms
We do not recommend converting our fillable PDF forms to plain text files (.txt) or Microsoft Office files (for example, .doc or .xls). If you convert these forms to another file type, they may not work properly and may not be screen reader accessible.
Order Printed Forms
Service providers may order any of the forms listed in this order form (MS Word) free of charge. The form must be emailed to HHS Printing Services for processing. For questions about your order, please contact 512-250-7137.
