Helpful Tips

As you create your ReEmployCT account, keep the following information in mind: 

You can choose any user ID you’d like and any password you’d like. Just make sure you can remember them, and don’t share them with anyone else, ever. CTDOL will never ask you for your password. 

In some cases, the User ID you choose might already be in use. We’ll have you pick another one if this happens.

Security questions help us identify you if you get locked out of your account. 

You can click on the drop-down menu to select each of your security questions. Make sure that you will remember the answers to your security questions if we ask you. 

Your email address is very important—it’s how we verify that you are you. 

Make sure you have access to your email. You will need the code we send to complete the ReEmployCT account setup.
