In order to login and access the myHFS Web applications, a State of Illinois Digital Identity is required. For new users, obtaining a State of Illinois Digital ID is a one-time process where you will enter Illinois-based information from your Drivers License / state identification card. During this process, you will create a User Name and Password for access to the myHFS Web applications. If you have your Drivers License / state identification card with you, this process should only take a few minutes. If you do not live in Illinois, you may still apply for an Illinois digital identity. Use the 'Register' option in the left menu to begin this process.
If you already have a State of Illinois Digital Identity, you can use your already established User Name and Password to login.
For step by step video instructions watch Getting Your User Name and Password Video.
