We’re boosting security and simplifying your log in experience.

You’ll Notice a Change at Your Next Login

Beginning May 11, there will be a single myCalPERS Log In page, instead of separate pages for member and employer accounts.

What’s more, members will no longer see the security image and message when they log in.

The new login process will include just three simple steps:

  1. On the myCalPERS login page, enter your Username and Password and select Log In.
  2. Choose a verification method, then select Continue.
  3. Enter your verification code, then select Continue.

Do You Have a Mobile Phone Number on File?

While having an email on file is mandatory, we recommend adding a mobile phone number too. This ensures you have an alternate contact method if you have difficulty accessing your email account.

Make Your Account Even More Secure

Consider enabling an authenticator app instead of receiving codes by text message, phone call, or email. Once enabled, the next time you log in to your myCalPERS account, you’ll enter a code from an authenticator app on your mobile device.

How to enable the authenticator app:

  1. Log in to myCalPERS.
  2. Go to the My Account dropdown.
  3. Select Security Settings.
  4. Scroll down to the Authenticator App card and select Enable an Authenticator App (if you don’t have one set up yet).

Already Have The Authenticator App Enabled?

The first time you log in to myCalPERS after the update, you’ll receive an alert prompting you to re-enable your authenticator app. Make sure to take this important step to bring your account up to date.
