3. Complete Form


You will be required to complete a form to confirm your identity to create a new password. Please note that you can provide either your FSW ID number OR the last four digits of your social security number, but you don't have to give both. The rest of the fields are required.

4. Enter New Password


You will then be prompted to choose a new password. Your password needs to be 8 to 12 characters in length, must contain a lower case and upper case letter, and a number. Previously used passwords and passwords that include your name will not be accepted. 

Note: YOUR USERNAME WILL APPEAR ON THE LAST SCREEN. You will need to use that username to be able to log into the Portal.

Once you have completed this step, you should be able to log into your Portal with your username and the new password.
