Frequently Asked Questions

Q - I signed up for the portal but I can't log in. It tells me I need to complete the registration, but when I try to register it tells me I already have an account.

A - When you initially signed up for the portal it sent you a verification email. To finish activating your portal you must click on the activation link in that email. If you did not receive the email in your inbox then check your spam folder. The verification email is good for 24 hours. If you were not able to click on the verification link during that time, you can go back to the portal sign-on screen and use the middle button to "re-send verification email" back to your mailbox. After you click the link in the email your portal account will be active.
