* For security reasons, some forms are only available to users with a valid Defence email address.

Access outside the Defence network

Access ServiceConnect outside the Defence network using the Australian Government Digital Identity system for identity verification. The system uses myGovID, the Australian Government's Digital Identity app.

myGovID is different from myGov. myGovID provides proof of identity when logging in to a range of government online accounts. Whereas a myGov account gives access to online government services in one place.

myGovID can be used to access a myGov account.

Setting up a myGovID

There are 3 steps to set up a myGovID.

  1. Download the myGovID app from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store to a compatible smart device. Only download the myGovID app from these official app stores as non-genuine versions may be available from other sources.

  2. Open the myGovID app and follow the prompts to enter a full name, date of birth and personal email address.

  3. Verify 2 Australian identity documents, such as a passport or drivers licence. ServiceConnect requires at least a Standard identity strength.
