To further protect confidential member information, the State Universities Retirement System (SURS) will be adding new safeguards to the SURS Member Website which is accessible through www.surs.org.

Beginning this month, members currently enrolled on the website will be required to re-register before logging onto the site. Members will be asked to verify their SURS-related information and answer a series of security questions to re-register. Upon completion of the updating process, a message will be sent from SURS to the member’s primary email address asking them to verify their email address. Members must respond within 60 minutes to the email or the link will become invalid and the process will need to be repeated. Once members have verified by responding to the email, they will be re-registered and able to access the members-only website.

Members newly enrolling will go through the same process when they initially log onto the website.

The new safeguard enhancements will further protect members’ personal information and allow SURS to implement future electronic forms and applications.
