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.

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.
