Financial Disclosure

The State Ethics Commission administers a financial disclosure program that requires more than 14,000 State employees, elected officials, candidates for State elected offices, other categories of officials including State agency managers, regulators and purchasing staff, and some appointed members of boards and commissions to file annual financial disclosure statements. The financial disclosure forms require the filer to identify real estate interests, equity interests, and other relationships such as employment, debts and gifts so that the public can be assured that the impartiality and independent judgment of those officials and employees will be maintained.

The general reporting deadline is April 30th of each year. New filers must file within 30 days of starting a position requiring financial disclosure. Persons leaving a position requiring disclosure must file a termination statement within 60 days of leaving that position.

The public can view filed financial disclosure forms at the Commission’s Office. Financial disclosure statements are available to the public for examination and copying. The individual who desires to view a financial disclosure statement must identify him or herself and provide his or her address, which will be recorded by the Commission. On the request of the individual whose statement was examined or copied, the Commission will forward a copy of that record to the individual.
