  • Your USER ID is your 6 digit employee number.  If you don't know your employee number, look on your e-Stub or contact your personnel representative.
     
  • Your PASSWORD is initially set to be the last 4 digits of your SSN followed by the MM and DD of your birth, making an 8 digit number.  Don't forget any leading zeros in your date of birth.
     
  • You are responsible for changing your password to whatever you would like once you log into the system by clicking on the "preferences" icon in the upper right corner (white rectangle with two checkmarks on it) or by selecting "Change Password" from the common tasks on the main screen.
     
  • If you have changed your password and have forgotten it, send an email to bfmsea@state.sd.us and provide your name and employee number.  Please try your default password first.
