How to create your account

To use MyBenefits, you need to have an email address on file and an open case with your member ID. You must also manage your own case (i.e. not a trustee or spouse).

  • Enter your 9-digit member ID
  • Enter the email address that you have on your file and press ‘Next’
  • A message will be sent to your email with an activation link. Click the link within 30 minutes to confirm your identity.

This will take you back to Ontario.ca/MyBenefits, where you will be prompted to enter your date of birth to finish the process. You do not need to do this step again in the future.

2. Set up your username and password to access your information. You have two choices to sign-in to your account:

  • Login with an email address and password of your choice using the ‘My Ontario Login’ or
  • Login with the same username and password as your online banking using ‘Securekey Concierge’

Follow the prompts to create your account. This is the way you will sign-in to MyBenefits for all future visits.
