1. Register your account, then keep your contact information current. As soon as you are able, log in to your Empower account online to ensure we have registered you as the authentic account owner. In addition to your contact information, add emails and your mobile number, if available, to help ensure we can contact you with proactive security alerts or in case of suspected unauthorized activity.
2. Protect your personal and financial information. Never share your passwords, personal account information or device authentication with anyone, including your family members or friends. Anyone with whom you share your account access is deemed authorized by you to conduct transactions on your account. Third party financial planning and budgeting applications that aggregate your data via sharing credentials, could present additional risks.
3. Review your accounts. Review your Empower security alerts immediately for unusual activity. Check your Empower statements regularly for accuracy or unexpected activity.
