Protecting your online UC accounts is a high priority for both you and UC. As you know, choosing strong and secure passwords is one important way that you can protect your accounts. To add another critical layer of protection, UC is preparing to add multifactor authentication (MFA) for access to your UC Retirement Plan account information.

You may already use MFA to access online banking or commerce sites. MFA protects your account by requiring more than one piece of evidence to confirm your identity -- for example, both your password and a code texted to your cell phone.

In preparation for the introduction of MFA, you will be requested to provide your personal cell phone number the next time you sign in to At Your Service Online (AYSO). Once your cell phone number is on file, you will gain access to your AYSO account as usual. If you don’t have a personal cell phone number or prefer not to provide yours, you can check a box to indicate that and proceed to enter your AYSO account.

Providing your cell phone number is optional, but it is highly recommended as an important step in introducing the additional protection of MFA to your AYSO UC retirement account.
