By the end of April, all eSRS and FSRS logins will require multifactor authentication. (gsa.gov)
What do you need to do? No action if you use the same email address to log into eSRS.gov or FSRS.gov and login.gov. However, if you use a different email address for your login.gov account than for eSRS and FSRS, you must create a new/different login.gov account that matches the eSRS/FSRS email address. (ibid)
Without matching email addresses data from all accounts won’t connect to login.gov. In addition, you must have a working phone number. Login.gov will send you a security code each time you log in as part of the multifactor authentication. The two-factor authentication is an additional level of security making it that much more difficult for a hacker to obtain unauthorized access to your account.
Your eSRS.gov and FSRS.gov account information will not change. Having the same login.gov email address simply gives you access to all of your records. Additionally, organizations will no longer be able to use one account for multiple users; login.gov requires individual accounts. These changes are all part of adding levels of security to not only protect the government but the security of your records as well. (ibid)
