Help Protect Your Finances from Fraud

Here are some steps you can take to help protect your account during National Cyber Security Awareness Month and beyond.

Claim your account. If you haven’t registered for your online account on After you log in, click "Set Up Your Online Access." Claiming your account ensures that someone else cannot create an account using your information. Remember to use a strong, unique password.

Keep your information updated. If you experience a change such as a new address, phone number, email address, or another change to your personal information, don’t forget to update your 457 plan to ensure any communications reach you. To change your information, log into your account and enter your user ID and password.

Monitor your account frequently. Check your online account frequently for any unusual activity. Also, promptly review all mail, email, and other communications from ICMA-RC and report any discrepancies. ICMA-RC will never ask you for your Social Security number or account information through mail, email, or by phone.

Notify ICMA-RC of any suspicious activity. If you do notice any suspicious activity regarding your account, contact ICMA-RC immediately at (800) 669-7400.

Also, learn about ICMA-RC's security guarantee and additional steps you can take to protect your account.
