How to Register for Self Service
1. Go to MyRetirement.ky.gov
This is the direct link to your Self Service account. You can also login from kyret.ky.gov.
2. Connect to Your Account
Click the "Need to Register?" link just below the login button. To register, you will enter your Social Security number, date of birth, a valid email address, and KRS-issued Personal Identification Number (PIN) so we can identify your account. Your PIN can be found on an Annual Statement issued prior to 2012. If you can't find your PIN, please call our office to request a new one.
Members and beneficiaries who have a valid email address on file with KRS can also request a new PIN to be sent to them via encrypted email, so they will receive the PIN the same day. A member or beneficiary may request a PIN via encrypted email in Step 2 of the registration process for the self-service portal, in the Contact Information module within the self-service portal, or by contacting KRS toll free at 1-800-928-4646. To request a new PIN through the self-service portal, click here to get started: https://kyret.ky.gov/Pages/Login.aspx
3. Create Login Information
We will ask you to create a User ID and Password, which you will use each time you login to your account. For additional security, you will answer a secret question. This answer will be used if you need to reset your User ID or Password.
When the setup steps are complete you are ready to manage your retirement account online!
The creation of a unique username and a "strong" password is a difficult task at first. To help out users, we have created an instruction sheet that can help you in the process.
How to Register for Member Self Service Video
We have created a Member Self Service Handbook to view online or download that will give you instructions, using screenshots, on how to navigate the Member Self Service website. If you have any questions about using the self service site, please call us at (502) 696-8800 or (800) 928-4646.
