Recommended Use

The below PDF forms are designed to be used electronically, however, if the form opens in a new browser window or in preview (Mac) it will effect the way it can be used and it will effect it's content when received. Right-click on the form you need from the list below and 'save as' a PDF.  Reopen it by right-clicking on the file name and choosing 'open with' Adobe Acrobat Reader (you need the latest version), as pictured below.

On a Mac, once the form is open, Right-Click (Control+Click) on the PDF file and choose Get Info, look for the Open With: section, in the drop down menu, choose Adobe Acrobat Reader and click the Change All... button to set all PDFs to open with Adobe Acrobat Reader. Chose OK to verify the changes.

If you use Chrome (recommended) this can be disabled. Go to chrome://settings/content and scroll down through the Content Settings to PDF documents and tick the box that says 'open PDF files in the default PDF viewer application'. This will now give you a direct 'save as' option and you can reopen as below:
