Setup is simple, and we guide you every step of the way.  

If you’re not ready to create your Manulife ID  yet, you can continue to sign in the way you always have—with your plan contract number, certificate number, and current password.

Setting up a Manulife ID will be required in the coming months. We encourage members to take a few minutes to do so now.

After you create and activate your Manulife ID, you’ll connect it to your group benefits account and other Manulife accounts you may hold as well.

Setting up a Manulife ID is simple! It’s one username and password -- the same kind of information you use now to manage your group benefits and group retirement plans. With user-friendly designs and guided help, we’ll walk you through the process of setting up your new Manulife ID.

Simply:

  1. Create it
  2. Activate it

Some areas of our business have already launched Manulife ID – which means it may sound familiar to you! If you’re not sure if you have a Manulife ID, go to the homepage and click on Forgot your username, then enter your email address. If you have a Manulife ID, you’ll get an email in less than five minutes. 

Sign in with your Manulife ID, then follow the steps below. You’ll only need to do this once!

  • On the Go to your products page, click on the Group benefits tile
  • On the Connect your group benefits plan page, put in the plan contract number, member certificate number and password you’ve always used before when signing into your group benefits account.
  • Then, simply click Connect

If you haven’t registered to access your group benefits account online before, under Are you new to group benefits? click Get started.

This means we found a match to a record with a combination of the same personal information.

If you’re not sure you have a Manulife ID, you can click on Forgot username and enter your email address. If you have a Manulife ID, you’ll get an email in less than five minutes.

If you remember your Manulife ID, you can click on Sign in.

Otherwise, you can click Create a new Manulife ID anyway to continue if you’re certain you don’t already have a Manulife ID.

We don’t recommend setting up more than one. Manulife ID is meant to be a single set of credentials to access all your Manulife products and services. 

Websites you’ve visited before can sometimes be stored in your browser’s “cache” (similar to its “history”).  When a lot of information is stored there, it can cause display or access problems for some pages and forms. Clearing your cache starts you off with a clean slate and can fix many common issues you may see.

In Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge:

  1. Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+Del (Windows) or Command+Shift+Delete (Mac).
  2. Choose All time from the Time range option at the top
  3. Check Cached images and files and
  4. Select Clear data (Clear now in Edge)

In Safari:

  1. Go the Safari app (Mac), choose History > Clear History, then click the pop-up menu
  2. Choose how far back you want your browsing history cleared
  3. Select Clear History

In Firefox:

  1. Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+Del (Windows) or Command+Shift+Delete (Mac).
  2. Choose Everything from the Time range to clear options, if you want to clear everything
  3. Check Cache
  4. Select Clear now

For the best experience when setting up your Manulife ID, we recommend using the latest version of one of the following browsers:

  • Google Chrome
  • Safari
  • Firefox
  • Microsoft Edge

There’s nothing you need to create your Manulife ID. After you’ve created one, you’ll need to connect your group benefits account. For that, you’ll need the following:

  • Plan contract number*
  • Member certificate number*
  • Group benefits password you used to sign in before setting up your Manulife ID

* You can find those numbers on you benefits card.

If you can’t find the information, don’t worry – our contact centre representatives can help. Give them a call at 1 800 268-6195.

No, Manulife ID passwords won’t expire, but we do recommend changing it occasionally – at least every six months. And if you ever think your account or device has been compromised, you should change your password as soon as you can.

An email address is mandatory for Manulife ID setup – you can’t activate your account without it. It’s used for security reasons, like two-factor authentication and account recovery.

Help to activate your Manulife ID

To finish setting up your Manulife ID, you need to click the Activate button in the automated activation email you get from Manulife. You’ll need to click the button no more than 15 minutes after getting the email.

If the time has passed, you’ll get an error message when you click Activate. If that happens, you’ll need to set up your Manulife ID again. Make sure to activate your account within the 15-minute window.

Here are some quick tips to try:

  • Check your spam or junk folders
  • Wait 15 minutes and try setting up your Manulife ID again

If you’re using your work email address, it is also possible that the activation email is blocked by your employer’s email security settings. You can try using another email address.

The activation email link is only valid for 15 minutes. If you use the link to activate your account outside of that 15-minute window, you’ll see an error message saying: “Sorry, this link isn’t active anymore”.

It’s important to activate your Manulife ID right away. If you don’t, you’ll have to start over again and set up your Manulife ID from the beginning.

Providing both an email address and mobile number will make it easier for you to use the various self-serve options available and helps keep your account secure. But you’re still able to set up your Manulife ID without it. We’ll only ask you for it once – if you skip the option and want to add it later, you can do that. Just go to Profile, then Manage your Manulife ID on your Manulife ID or group benefits site. 

Here are a couple troubleshooting tips you can use:

  • Make sure your phone is turned on
  • Check your device settings (SMS may be turned off)
  • Is your phone experiencing carrier issues, network issues, or out of reach?
  • Check the phone number you entered is correct

On the Let’s confirm your mobile number screen, click “go back” and try again

If you still haven’t received the one-time code, give us a call at 1 800 268-6195.

Tip: If you requested multiple verification codes, only the newest one will work. A one-time code expires in 15 minutes.

Help to connect your accounts

No. Connecting your accounts is a one-time process. If you have multiple accounts, you’ll have to connect them one at a time. But once connected, they stay connected and you can quickly and easily switch between them after signing in using your new Manulife ID. 

Do you currently sign in to more than one Manulife webpage to access your accounts? When you sign in with your Manulife ID, we’ll direct you to a page asking you where you want to go. On that page, you’ll see all the accounts available to connect to your Manulife ID. If you have another account, like group retirement, simply click on that tile and follow the steps to connect that account to your new ID.

Once you set up your Manulife ID and connect your accounts, you’ll have access to them under one simple, secure username and password. Sign in once and move between your accounts quickly and easily!

This can happen in a few different instances, like after you try to sign in a few times with the wrong password. We do this to keep your information safe. To unlock your account, click Forgot your password. We’ll send you a one-time code by email or text, depending on the preference you’ve set.

If you’re still having trouble, give us a call at 1 800 268-6195.

Here are a couple troubleshooting tips you can use:

  • Verify you’re connected to the internet
  • Check your junk and spam folders to see if the code was accidentally sent there
  • On the Enter the code screen, double-check if the code was sent by email or text
  • On the Enter the code screen, ask for a new code or try another way of getting the code (for example, if you asked for it by text before, you can now ask for it by email)

If you still haven’t received the one-time code, give us a call at 1 800 268-6195.

Tip: If you requested multiple verification codes, only the newest one will work. A one-time code expires in 15 minutes.

When you sign in with your Manulife ID (and before you choose your account), go to Profile, then Manage your Manulife ID. This is where you manage your Manulife ID. That includes updating your email and mobile number, changing your username or password, or updating the personal information you gave us to set up your Manulife ID.
