DFS Informational Memorandum: Communication Via Email Coming Jan. 1
Beginning January 1, 2009, more and more of the Florida Department of Financial Services' (DFS) communication with you will be done electronically. It is of utmost importance to you to add, verify or update your email address with DFS as soon as possible.
DFS proposed, and the Florida Legislature agreed, that as part of lowering operating costs and providing more efficient services, this move was important. The law now requires you to notify DFS of your email address and to keep it current.
DFS will now send most correspondence electronically via e-mail, My Profile, or through their education system. DFS will continue to communicate correspondence of a more sensitive nature through paper correspondence, which includes correspondence that pertains to criminal history, and administrative and civil actions.
