FAQ – AccèsD – Logging in to AccèsD

To sign up for AccèsD Internet or AccèsD Telephone services, you must be a member of a caisse, have a Desjardins Access Card (debit card) or have a Desjardins credit card.

Not yet a member of a Desjardins caisse?

If you already meet these conditions, see AccèsD registration.

When you register for AccèsD, you are assigned a temporary password, which you must change the first time you use the system and within a 5-day period.

Password requirements

  • 8 to 128 characters, and can contain one or more uppercase or lowercase letters, numbers or special characters
  • Not a word that's easy to guess
  • Different from your last 6 passwords
  • Can be made up of multiple words with or without spaces

Use the advice that appears under the New password field to create a more secure password.

Your password can be used to log in from a computer, tablet or smartphone. It cannot be used to log in by phone.

Avoid:

  • Passwords that are easy to guess or figure out when typed in, such as 123abc or 9999a
  • Passwords identical to your username, since it’s the first thing fraudsters try
  • A single password for all your accounts, since fraudsters can use it to access the other websites or systems you use

Your password is different from your Desjardins Access Card PIN (personal identification number), which has 5 characters and is used only for ATM or direct payment transactions.

If you use AccèsD Telephone

If you already have an AccèsD Telephone password, you can continue using it.

To get an AccèsD Telephone password or to change an existing one, call 514-CAISSES (514-224-7737) or 1-800-CAISSES (1-800-224-7737).

Questions are developed to minimize the chances of forgetting the answers because they all refer to personal events that took place at a specific time in your life. A sophisticated recognition mechanism is implemented to minimize the number of common errors that can happen when you enter your answer. For example, the system would consider "Saint-Paul," "St-Paul" and "St. Paul" as equivalent answers.

However, if you answer a question incorrectly 3 times in a row, your username will be suspended as a precaution. You will then have to contact us to reactivate your access.
