My Account

My Account lets you do a number of things online such as view your payments, declare your income, book appointments and update some of your information. There’s no waiting in line or on the phone.

Who can use My Account

You can create a My Account if you receive financial assistance from us or NZ Super.

You’ll need an email address and a mobile phone number. If you don’t have a mobile, contact us if you need to update your details or declare your income online.

You can only create and use a My Account for yourself.

If you’re an agent or have power of attorney for a client, you can make enquiries or complete transactions for your client by calling or visiting us.

How to create a My Account

  1. Select 'Log in to My Account' below. This will take you to the Online Services homepage – select 'My Account'.
  2. Log in using RealMe. If you already have a RealMe login you can use that, otherwise you’ll need to create one.

  3. You'll receive a text message from RealMe with a six digit code. Enter the six digit code to continue.

  4. To access My Account for the first time you need to enter your:
    • client number - this is the 9-digit number printed on all letters we send you and also on your Community Services Card
    • one-time password that we've sent to your mobile phone number (this is different from the RealMe text code).
      How to get a one-time password

Please note:

  • Your RealMe username, password and one-time password are case-sensitive.
  • The next time you log in you’ll only need your RealMe username, password and mobile phone. RealMe will text a new authentication code every time you log in to My Account.
