Frequently Asked Questions about PeopleSoft ESS

1.  I don't know my PeopleSoft ESS User ID number   Your User ID number is your 6-digit Payroll ID number, not your Employee ID number.  If you don't know your Payroll ID number, log in to Employee Online and find your Payroll (SDCOE) ID number under Personal Information in the menu, or call Payroll (x181392).

2.  I don't know my Password.  It's my first time logging into PeopleSoft ESS For guidance logging in the first time with an auto-generated password, go to the SDCOE webpage titled, How to View Your Paycheck in PeopleSoft.  When you've logged in successfully, you will be directed to a page with a link that says 'Your password has expired.  Click here to reset your password.'  Follow the password requirements carefully to create a new password.  (Don't forget to set up your Forgotten Password Help in your profile.  See below for more information.) 

3.  I can't remember my password and I've previously logged into PeopleSoft ESS and changed my password. Use the Forgot My Password link on the log in page.  (Note: This will only work if you've previously set up a security question - see instructions at the bottom of this page).

Did you remember to include a special character when you tried to log in?  Your password for PeopleSoft must include the following:  Capital letter, lowercase letter, number, and a special character (totaling 7+ characters).  If you cannot remember your password, call the Help Desk (x181453) to have your password reset.
