How to Register a New UI Employer Account in MyUI Employer+

#FFFFFF

Colorado employers who do not have an active Unemployment Insurance (UI) employer account will need to register in the new MyUI Employer+ system in order to file wage reports and pay premiums. Employers who already have an active UI Employer account (formerly known as MyUI Employer) will need to activate their MyUI Employer+ account.

To ensure your employer account information is secure, all users are required to register for individual accounts. Employer account administrators will register the UI employer account, then invite users to register, access, and manage the employer account inside MyUI Employer+. This is an added layer of security designed to protect the data submitted and displayed in the online system.

Registering for a MyUI Employer+ employer account requires multiple steps in order to verify the person initiating the registration is the owner/administrator of the employer account. The person registering the UI employer account must be the primary account administrator and trusted to handle sensitive and confidential information.

Account administrators can view all available information in the account, make changes, complete transactions, and enable access to third party administrators and other users of the account.

NOTE: If your business has an active UI employer account you do not need to register a new account. See Activating My Employer Account in MyUI Employer+ to activate your existing account.

Step 1. Create a User Login

To create a new UI employer account in MyUI Employer+, you will need to create a user login

  • Enter the User ID and Password you created and click ‘Login’ to continue.

Step 2. Set Up Multi-Factor Authentication

You will be required to set up Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to access your MyUI Employer+ account. MFA adds an extra layer of security when signing into your account. Each time you login to your account you will receive a temporary security code via text message, email, or authenticator app to access your account. This extra step enhances the security of your personal data and prevents unauthorized access to your account.

  • Select your preferred method (authenticator app, text, or email) to receive temporary codes and click ‘Start Setup’.

NOTE: If you select the authenticator app as your preferred method you will be instructed to install an authenticator app on your mobile device, add your MyUI Employer+ account to the app, and then enter the verification code you receive into the required field. If you select to receive codes via text or email, you will skip this step.

  • Enter the verification code you receive in the field provided and click ‘Enroll in MFA’ to continue.
