Additionally, all FINRA members who are members of SIPC and who are required to file Annual Reports pursuant to SEC Rule 17a-5(d)(1), 17 C.F.R. § 240.17a-5(d)(1), must also file a copy of their Annual Reports with SIPC. See SEC Rule 17a-5(d)(6), 17 C.F.R. § 240.17a-5(d)(6). Annual Reports must be filed with SIPC electronically. Email the Annual Reports to SIPCAuditReports@sipc.org, and in the subject line, please include the SEC 8- number, the name of the member, and the fiscal year end for the Annual Reports.
