How to Register for myAccount

We have designed our registration system to be as easy as possible to use.

On the Register for myAccount screen you will be asked for a number of details. Once you have given us these details, we will match them with our records.

If the details match then you will be issued with a temporary password either by text, email or by post. Once you have your temporary password, you are ready to use myAccount.

Remember that the temporary password is only valid for a certain timeframe as follows:

  • Text or email - expires after 1 hour,
  • Post – expires 21 days from the date of the letter.

You will have to create a new password when you log in to myAccount for the first time. Please keep your password safe and secret.

If your details don't match immediately, don't worry. We will try our best to resolve matters for you. If we need to, we will contact you by phone to help sort out any problems with your registration.
