About Merging Interfolio Accounts

It is possible to end up with multiple Interfolio accounts whether it is from working at an institution, applying to various positions, or being a letter writer. This tool has been designed to let users self-merge their multiple accounts.


Check out this article on how to Merge Interfolio Accounts for detailed steps on this process.


To retrieve passwords while merging accounts, reset the password on the Interfolio login page. Check out this article on how to Recover Your Password for further direction.


Certain accounts cannot be merged due to being tied to an institutional account (Dossier Admin and Standard Receiver). If any concerns arise, please reach out to to speak to a representative.
