ESS Passwords will no longer be reset by the State Auditor's Office, effective January 1, 2016. Agency HR/Payroll representatives will now have the ability to reset their employees' ESS passwords.

The State Auditor's Office is relocating to 2020 Carey Avenue due to the Capitol Renovation and Restoration project. The move will occur between October 26 to October 30.  Our main office will be located on the 8th floor beginning November 2.

ESS Password Resets

posted Sep 9, 2015, 1:44 PM by David Ray

Please note that we receive a very high volume of ESS password reset requests.  This can be as high as 200-300 requests in a given day.  Our office process these requests on a first-come, first-serve basis.  It may take up to 3 business days to process an individual request.  Also, the ESS portal is an extension of the HRM Payroll system. So when the payroll system is unavailable for monthly processing, ESS is also unavailable for password resets.

When you request an ESS password reset from the Payroll Help Desk please be sure to include your 10-digit employee id (obtainable from your agency's HR representative or on your paystub) and your date of birth (for identity verification).

The ESS portal does make a self-service password reset (Forgot My Password link) available.  However, to take advantage of this you will need to setup a password hint in ESS upon a successful logon.  Please contact the Payroll Help Desk if you have any questions about setting up that password hint.
