Keeping SSF records

Committees and their treasurers must make best efforts to obtain and maintain (and ultimately report) the information required by law with respect to itemized receipts and disbursements.


The Federal Election Campaign Act requires that records be kept for all of the SSF’s contributions received and disbursements made. Recordkeeping is the responsibility of the treasurer, even if the SSF appoints someone else to keep records of the committee’s activity. Treasurers of SSFs are responsible for keeping copies of each statement and report, along with original back-up records (such as bank statements, paid invoices, etc.) for three years after the report or statement is filed.
