Setting Up a New Authorized Agent Account

When an old Authorized Agent leaves your employer, the new Authorized Agent will need to set up a new account.

Once your board of trustees names a new Authorized Agent:

Can other employees use my Employer Access account?

You should never share accounts, even within the same employer.

If other employees assist in the administration of IMRF, the Authorized Agent should create “Web Assistant” accounts for them. You can decide which permissions to grant them.

You can also appoint one of your Web Assistants as a “Security Administrator” to handle the creation of additional Web Assistant accounts.

Why create Web Assistant accounts?

When you log in to Employer Access as the Authorized Agent (or with any account), you are identifying yourself to IMRF as that person.

Creating Web Assistant accounts protects both the Authorized Agent and the Web Assistant. When you create and use Web Assistant accounts, it creates a proper record of the person who submitted the information to IMRF, should there be any dispute.

What if I’m having trouble accessing my account?

If you know your User ID, click Forgot Password to initiate the reset process.

If you are a Web Assistant and do not know your User ID, ask your employer’s Authorized Agent or Security Administrator to provide it to you. Users in these roles can view, activate, and deactivate online employer account profiles. If you are the Authorized Agent and do not know your User ID, you must register for an Employer Access account.
