Getting Started with mySFERS…the SFERS Member-Only Community
The San Francisco Employees’ Retirement System is pleased to offer to all members, 24/7 access to individual account information, online forms and statements and a benefit modeling calculator (for active members).
To access mySFERS for the first time, you must register as a SFERS member. Registration is simple and secure. Registration is required in order to verify that you are a valid SFERS member. Only current SFERS members have access to mySFERS.
In the blue Login box located in the upper left column on the Home page, click on “Register” to begin the registration process. On the new page, in the blue Registration box on the right side of the page, enter the requested information in the fields provided. Note: enter your name as it appears in payroll/pension records.
- Your first name
- Your last name
- Your date of birth
- Last four digits of your social security number (SSN)
Create a Username
Create a username that is easy for you to remember. Your username must contain a minimum of seven characters and any combination of upper and lower case letters, and numbers (dash (-) and underscore (_) are also permitted). You will be required to enter your username each time you log into mySFERS. You can change your username while logged into mySFERS once you register as a member.
Create a Password
Create a password that is not easy for others to guess. Your password must contain a minimum of seven characters in any combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters. Do not use (“ or ‘) as part of your password, and do not begin your password with the pound symbol (“#”). A strength indicator is provided to help you create a password that cannot easily be compromised. Note: actual words or names (e.g. boy), or sequential numbers (e.g. 1234) as part of your password will not register as a “strong” password. You will be required to enter your password each time you log into mySFERS. You can change your password while logged into mySFERS once you register as a member.
Enter a Valid Email Address (required)
Your email address will be used for communication purposes only. You must enter your email address twice to confirm you’ve entered it correctly. We recommend using a personal email address although, it is not required. If you do not have a personal email account, and you would like to create one, click on “Don’t have an email?” below the registration form. You will be directed to a new window with a choice of email providers in order to create a free email account. Once you have set up your new email account, you can return to the SFERS website to complete the registration process.
Select a Personal Question and Answer
From the drop down menu provided, select a personal question. Then, type in the answer to the personal question in the field proved below. The personal question and answer is for security purposes in the event we need to verify your identity.
