Registering for myAccount

We have designed our registration system to be as easy as possible to use.

On the Register for myAccount screen you will be asked for a number of details. Once you have input these details, we will match them with our records.

If the details match you will be issued with a temporary password either by text, email or post. Once you have your temporary password, you are ready to use myAccount.

Please note that the temporary password is only valid for a certain period of time:

  • text or email - expires after 1 hour
  • post – expires 21 days from the date of the letter.

You will have to create a new password when you log in to myAccount for the first time. Please keep your password safe and secret.

Do not be concerned if your details fail to match immediately. We will try our best to resolve matters for you. If we need to, we will contact you by phone to help sort out any problems with your registration.

If you can provide two of the following pieces of information, and we can verify this information immediately, we will send a temporary password by either text or email:

  • Irish driving licence number
  • information from your payslip
  • details from an Income Tax Notice of Assessment, or acknowledgement of self-assessment.

Where it is not possible to verify this information immediately, the temporary password will be issued to you by post.

Forgotten passwords

If you have forgotten your myAccount password, you can click on the ‘Forgot Password?’ link on the myAccount sign-in screen. We can issue a new temporary password immediately in many cases.
