Revised Article 9 UCC Search

Welcome to the UCC index search. This service is offered free-of-charge, 24 hours a day and is updated as filings are made on the system. The database includes the complete UCC index of the Secretary of State.

The UCC index can be searched by the name of the debtor or by the file number.

Under the authority of KRS 61.878(1)(a), we are withholding social security numbers from the information provided to you. Disclosure of social security numbers would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. Individuals have a strong interest in keeping their social security numbers confidential. There is no corresponding disclosure interest that outweighs the privacy interest

For filings made before June 29, 2001, there was no requirement that the exact legal organization or individual name be used in the filing. Therefore, a Non-Standard search may be necessary to discover the name used on a particular filing.

Filing Number:  - -
             or
Organization Name: 
             or
Individual’s Surname   
First Personal Name: 
Additional Name(s)Initial(s): 
Name Suffix: 

If data is entered in more than one section of the above form, the filing number will be given first priority, then the organization name, then the individual name.

The new Kentucky UCC law, Revised Article 9, took effect July 1, 2001. RA9 allows only one type of search, the Standard Search, which matches the complete organization name, or matches a complete individual name, using the standard search logic. This type of search would be certified, if it was done by the Secretary of State's UCC division. On the standard search page, any percent (%) characters entered are removed before the database is searched.

Kentucky allows an additional Non-standard search which allows partial matches on the name. Use the percent (%) character as a wildcard character to match anything; for example, entering bluegrass% in the organization name field will find all debtor organizations whose name begins with "bluegrass". This type of search, which is outside the search rules of RA9, would not be certified if done by the Secretary of State.

PLEASE NOTE that for filings made before June 29, 2001, there was no requirement that the exact legal organization or individual name be used in the filing. Therefore, a Non-Standard search may be necessary to discover the name used on a particular filing.

A copy of the data from the Kentucky Lien Information System, which was maintained from January 4, 1999 through July 13, 2000, can be obtained by contacting the Information Technology section of the Secretary of State's office.
