Login.gov


As part of the ReInvent Grants Management (RGM) initiative HHS is leveraging Login.gov to provide a single credential experience to grant recipients. This initiative will allow you to login to multiple government systems with the same email address and password. The option to login using your PMS username and password will still be available. You are still required to update your password in PMS every 60 days.

What will happen to my current PMS profile?

Nothing will happen to the information stored in your PMS profile. Once you set up a login.gov account, we’ll link it back to your PMS profile. The only difference is you’ll use your login.gov email address, password and system generated one-time security code to login each time.

What email address do I use to create a login.gov account?

Use the same email address you set up in PMS so we can automatically link your PMS profile to your login.gov account. If you use a different email address, we won’t be able to link your profile. If you need to verify or change your email address in PMS, instructions are provided below.

How do I create a Login.gov account?

You need to create a login.gov account to sign into PMS and access your profile information. At a later time, your old PMS username and password won’t work, and you will receive additional information at a later time.

You’ll need to:

  1. Create a login.gov account — you only need to do this once.
  2. Enter an email address - use the same email address you use for PMS, if you have an existing profile with us. If you are unsure of the email address in PMS following the instructions at the bottom of the page to verify your email address.
  3. Create a new password.
  4. Have a working phone number (mobile or landline) or an authentication application installed on a device—login.gov will send you a one-time security code.
  5. Finish setting up your login.gov account.

If you would like to see a step by step guide with screenshots of how to create an account, you can visit the login.gov website.
