What is the miAccount Message Board for guests?

If you’re not a member, but need to communicate with ORS, you can send a message on the Message Board as a guest user. You don’t need a MiLogin account nor access to miAccount. You may need to use this option to report the death of a member, request information, or ask a general question. Please note we cannot give account-specific information via the guest Message Board.

Having trouble logging in to MiLogin and miAccount?

What is MiLogin?

The Michigan Office of Retirement Services (ORS) has adopted MiLogin, the State of Michigan’s single sign-on application for online access to many state services, including miAccount. For increased security, MiLogin requires a multifactor authentication before you can access miAccount or other state systems. If you don’t have a MiLogin account, you’ll need to create one. Learn how by viewing the short tutorial Create your MiLogin account, available on the Department of Technology, Management and Budget (DTMB) YouTube channel. If you already have a personal MiLogin account, sign in to access miAccount.

Note: MiLogin for Workers and MiLogin for Third Party accounts do not work with miAccount.

What is miAccount?

miAccount is ORS’ secure, online tool for managing your retirement account. You will use MiLogin to access miAccount.

As an active member with a pension benefit, miAccount will allow you to:

  • Check your reported compensation and service credit (earned and purchased).
  • Name beneficiaries.
  • Create pension estimates.
  • Apply to retire.

As a retiree, miAccount will allow you to:

  • Update your address, phone number, and email.
  • Enroll or unenroll in insurance.
  • Change your tax withholding.
  • Change your direct deposit information.
  • See the next pension pay date.
  • View each pension payment, including deductions and withholdings.
  • Print your 1099-R tax document.
 

Need help logging in to MiLogin?

  • Your user name for miAccount may be different than your user ID for MiLogin. If you already have a MiLogin account but can’t remember your user ID, view the tutorial Lookup MiLogin User ID on the Department of Technology, Management and Budget (DTMB) YouTube channel. If you don’t have a MiLogin account, you need to create one.

  • In MiLogin, an email address can only be associated with one account. If you and another person use the same email address and that person used that address to create their MiLogin account, you will have to use a different email address to create your own MiLogin account. If you don’t already have a different email address you can use, you must create one with your email provider.

  • You will be asked for a phone number during the MiLogin registration process. You will receive a text message or call to this phone number. So, choose a number where you can be reached within the next five minutes.

  • View the tutorial Lookup MiLogin User ID available on the DTMB YouTube channel.

  • If you forgot your MiLogin password, learn how to reset it by watching the Forgot MiLogin password tutorial on the DTMB YouTube channel.

  • Recover your MiLogin user ID as directed in Step 4 above. Then, reset your password as directed in Step 5 above.

  • Registration and log in for miAccount is handled through MiLogin. The MiLogin Help Instructions provide links to video tutorials as well as step-by-step directions with images.

    MiLogin Help Instructions

  • If you’ve tried using the MiLogin Help Instructions and tutorials without success, please call ORS at 800-381-5111.

  • If you’re an active member, you need your member ID to verify your identity for miAccount. However, if you’re a retiree, you need the exact dollar amount of your last pension payment. See question No. 3 below if you need help determining the dollar amount.

    If you’re an active member and don’t have your member ID, check any letters we sent you from 2008 or later. If you don’t have those handy, you can click Send my Member ID by the U.S. Mail on the Verify Your Identity screen in miAccount.

    It takes about three to five days for the letter to arrive at the address we have on file for you. If you don’t think your address is current, you can call us at 800-381-5111 and we can update your address for you.

  • We apologize for this inconvenience. If you’re receiving a 403 error in miAccount, we suggest you clear your internet browser cache on your computer or device. If this still does not resolve the issue, restart your computer or device and try logging in again. Below are helpful tips for clearing the cache on different computer and device  browsers:

    If you continue to have problems, you may want to switch browsers. 

     
  • You can find your net pension amount on your most recent bank statement(s). The payment amount must be entered without a dollar sign or comma. If your last net pension payment amount was $1,234.56, enter 1234.56. If your pension is deposited into more than one account, add up the amounts and enter the total net amount.

  • If you’ve used the instructions and are still unable to use MiLogin to access miAccount, please call the Michigan Office of Retirement Services at 800-381-5111.

  • Unfortunately, we can’t contact individual members by phone or email. You can get answers to most of your retirement questions on our website. If you’d like to speak to someone, you can call us at 800-381-5111.
