MULTI-FACTOR Authentication for Member Benefits Online System(MBOS)

Mandatory implementation of Multi-Factor Authentification (MFA) is now required for access to Member Benefits Online System (MBOS) via the myNewJersey portal.

The Division of Pension & Benefits, with the Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, and Office of Information Technology, is requiring use of MFA by all MBOS users to improve the security of online systems.

MFA is free and does not involve use of your personal information. After MFA is activated, authentication may be done through SMS text, an authenticator app on a smartphone or tablet, or both. A third option is available for members who only use a computer- this is referred to as a browser authenticator extension. As a registered MBOS user, you will be required to immediately implement MFA the next time you log on- to the myNewJersey portal. After you review the MFA authentication options, complete setup to protect your personal information, and assure continued access to the information and applications in MBOS.

If you need help setting up or using the MFA , please contact the myNewJersey Help Desk via the “Need Help?” link on the login page or call 609-376-7001.

*Cell carrier message and data rates may apply for MFA using SMS text.
