Registering as an SSF

The Federal Election Campaign Act (the Act) generally prohibits corporations (including incorporated trade associations and membership organizations) and labor organizations from using their general treasury funds to make contributions to federal candidates, federal accounts of political party committees, and other political committees (PACs). They may, however, fund independent expenditures, contribute to political committees established solely to finance independent expenditures (e.g., Super PACs), contribute to the non-contribution accounts of Hybrid PACs, and establish separate segregated funds (SSF).
