You may choose the Forgot Username or Forgot Password options to recover your online account. If you have not signed into your account at least one time in the past year, simply complete the registration process to set up your online account.
Why am I being prompted to change my password?
As part of the redesign and revised navigation of the website, we are requiring each registered user to establish a new password and update online credentials (including validation of an existing email address) with us.
Can a current password be used if it meets all the new requirements?
No. All users will be required to establish a new password upon first sign in to SecurityBenefit.com.
What are the password requirements?
A password must contain at least eight (8) characters:
- at least 1 number
- at least 1 lowercase letter
- at least 1 uppercase letter
- and cannot contain part of your username
Why do I need to complete additional security questions?
We have included additional security questions to validate online access and two-factor authentication to provide an enhanced level of security as confirmation when signing in to the site.
Will I have to enter a verification code every time I sign in?
No. You can click the checkbox to "Please remember me on this device" and you will not be required to enter a verification code each time you sign in. If you sign in to your account with a different device, you will be asked to complete the two-factor authentication process on that device.
How do I change how I will receive my verification code?
Simply navigate to SecurityBenefit.com, sign in with your username and password, and then go to "My Profile" in the top navigation bar to access the "Edit My Profile" selection in the dropdown menu to make changes to how you receive a verification code. You can choose between an email, a text message to your cell phone, or a voice call to any working phone number you choose.
What if the email address listed on my account is wrong? How do I get my verification code?
