Password Reset

PMS passwords expire every 60 days. When you first log into the system, the welcome screen displays a message telling you whether your password is temporary or when it is due to expire.

PMS provides a method for changing your password from the “My User Info” link in PMS. Additionally, it provides a process for users to reset their password if it has been forgotten or has expired.

All users are required to set up and answer three security questions. The security questions and answers are a necessary component in the password change/reset process. The tab for setting and answering the security questions is located at the “My User Info” screen in PMS.

If a user’s password needs to be reset (either due to expiration or because it was forgotten) prior to setting up their security questions, they will have to contact the ONE-DHHS Help Desk to have their password reset.

Our PMS Help Desk page has more information about hours and support.
