I have not logged on for a few months and when l try to view my pay statement it wont accept my id & password


First thing I would do is change my password. Some websites will not allow you to sign in if the password has expired or if your account has been compromised. On the sign in page, look for Forgot Password and click on it. You will likely have to enter your email address. After this goto your email and look an email from the service provider. It should have a link to reset your password or create a new one. Hope this helps!

Will not accept my email password. Don't want to change it

If you haven't changed anything and it now doesn't work, there can only be a few reasons.

Email server is down, an outage or planned maintenance. Wait 24 hours.

Someone has hacked your email and changed the password.

You are entering the password incorrectly. They are case sensitive. Caps Lock on? The password 'wefixit', is not the same as 'WeFixIt'.

If it is neither of these, then the only way is to click the Forgot Password link. In my experience they always make you change it to a password you have not used before. Now, I use my current password and add '2015' to it. I intend to change it only when that one is messed up.
