Starting May 15th, 2023, ServicePower will no longer accept SFTP/FTP exchanges directly on the
ServiceClaims FTP Server (ftp://claimworks.servicepower.com
If you have not made the necessary changes described below before May 15th, 2023, your claims
and/or PPV files will NOT be processed. A new, standalone SFTP server will need to be utilized for
all file exchanges – please note that the new URL for this server is sftp://sftp.servicepower.com.
The switch to this new server will see username and password-based login deprecated and will be
replaced with ID and Certificate-Based Authentication. A private key must be generated by you the
servicer/PD. You must provide ServicePower with the public key to enable connection to
sftp://sftp.servicepower.com. If you have not provided us with a public key to process file
exchanges, we encourage you to do so immediately!
Further information on how to create a private/public key and how to share the public key with
ServicePower can be found here.
