  • CID/PIN Replacement

    If you are submitting a document for an existing entity, then the first step is to log-in to the system with the entity’s pre-assigned Customer ID Number (CID) and PIN. If you have forgotten the CID or PIN, please contact the Corporations Division at LARA-CSCL-CorpPIN@michigan.gov or call (517) 241-6470 to obtain that information.  Please do not send multiple email requests for CID/ PIN numbers, as this will slow processing time.
