Is using Self-Service secure?

The security features for Self-Service are standard with other industries and approved by ORACLE. When you click the Login button, your username and password are encrypted (made unreadable) using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. A firewall is used to prevent unauthorized workstations from accessing the system. We will continue to ensure that the most updated security technology is used to safeguard information residing on the computer.

Learn more about network security.

Can Oracle limit the number of attempts to log in?

Yes, after five attempts, it will not allow you to continue. If you are locked out of the system, please contact the Help Desk at ext. 4357 for assistance.

Can you view the employee, beneficiary, and dependent's social security number on the screens?
