Take Two Minutes to Protect Yourself From Fraud

Your myCalPERS account is the best place to update your contact information, your beneficiaries, and review your health benefits.

For that reason, your account contains quite a lot of private information. It’s important to keep it protected.

Please take a couple of minutes to set up two-factor authentication (2FA) today.

What Is 2FA?

2FA is a widely used tool that provides an extra layer of security to your myCalPERS account.

In addition to logging in with your username and password, 2FA requires you to enter an additional verification code to access your account. That extra layer of validation minimizes security breaches and helps secure your online account.

How Do I Set Up 2FA?

To enable this feature, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your myCalPERS account.
  2. Go to your Security Settings under the Profile tab.
  3. Select Enable Two-Factor Authentication to begin the setup process.
  4. Follow instructions to download an application to your mobile device, scan a QR code, and enter a unique authentication code.

Once enabled, each time you log in to your myCalPERS account, you’ll open your mobile device’s 2FA  application, then enter the six-digit code to access your account.

Please help keep our systems and your private information safe by enabling 2FA in your myCalPERS account today.

If you have questions, call us at 888 CalPERS (or 888-225-7377).
