Step

Action

1

Start Internet Explorer by clicking the IE Icon icon on your desktop or by choosing Internet Explorer from the programs section of the start menu.

 

Note:  Other web browsers may work but are not supported.

2

Enter the system's address (e. g. https://ep.direct-access.us) in the Address block and press enter or click the "Go" button on the tool bar.

3

Enter your User ID (User IDs are case sensitive).

 

Note: Your User ID will be your Employee ID number unless you have been assigned a different ID by Customer Care.

4

Enter your Password. Note: Your First Password will be: CG + last 4 of SSN + @ + birth year (for example, if the last 4 digits of your SSN are 1234 and you were born in 1956, your password is CG1234@1956).

5

Click the Sign in button button (Clicking the button with the mouse pointer seems to work better than pressing the enter key).

 

Your password will be set to expire on the first logon. Follow the How to Change Your Password procedure to setup your account.
