Enrolling in E-Direct

Follow these 9 simple steps to register an EmployeeDirect account.

Step 1:

Visit and click on “Register Now”

Step 2:

Click on “Register Now”

Step 3:

Enter the seven-digit ID number found on your health insurance card (not your Banner ID number) and your Date of Birth.  (Example: health insurance ID number is YTX1234567XU, then EmployeeDirect ID number is 1234567).


If you do not have a health insurance card or require assistance in identifying your ID number, please contact Michelle McBeth in Human Resources at 221-3151.

Step 4:

Confirm your E-mail address so EmployeeDirect can send you a message with a link that you must activate to complete your request to register.

Step 5:

Check your e-mail for the message from EmployeeDirect. Follow the time-sensitive instructions contained in the message. If you let the message expire, you will have to repeat your registration request.

Step 6:

Register your account.

  • Enter your Identification information. It must match the information currently on file at your agency.
  • Create a Username to use each time you log-in. It must contain at least 4 characters and can be a word, a phrase, or numbers.
  • Create a Password to protect your account. It must contain at least 9 characters using UPPERcase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols (“$%^&*).
  • Select and answer Challenge Questions to verify you identity when there is a request to reset your password. Use words, phrases, or numbers that are easy for you to remember and hard for someone else to guess.
  • Remember your Username, Password, and Answers to Challenge Questions exactly as you have registered them.

Step 7:

Log-in using your Username and Password.

Step 8:

Select a link from the EmployeeDirect Main Menu. Most registered account holders have access to a variety of personnel, compensation and benefits resources. The following options are also available:

  • Change your Challenge Questions
  • Change your E-mail
  • Change your Password
  • Change your Username

Step 9:

Once you make a change to your health benefits or Flexible Reimbursement Account (FRA), print a copy of the confirmation once you’ve successfully finished making changes to keep for your records.
