Research by Mail

 

Fill out this form to request research time. Your credit card will be billed upon submission. We recommend purchasing one or two hours of research to start. If your request requires additional hours, a staff member will contact you directly.

Fees for this service are $35/hour for HSP members and $60/hour for nonmembers. (Members receive 40 percent off! Become a member today.) The research fee includes the cost of up to 20 photocopied pages of supporting documents. After the first hour of research, additional hours are discounted at $30/hour for HSP members and $50/hour for nonmembers.

Research requests usually take 6-8 weeks to process. If you would like us to complete your request within 2 weeks, please use Rush Service (an additional $20/hour).

You may print out and mail a PDF version of this form to pay by check or to have your credit card billed only after the research is completed. If you have any questions, please contact researchbymail@hsp.org or 215-732-6200 ext. 222.
