We know USPS or the United States Postal Services as probably the best and well-known mail delivery service in the world. It is one of the largest governments run mail service organizations employing hundreds of thousands of full-service employees. The much-admired mail service provider sincerely cares for the wellbeing and welfare of its employees and so they have created an intuitive online platform called USPS Liteblue.
Liteblue USPS GOV is the official online portal specially created for use by their regular employees and associates of the United States Postal Service. Any registered employee can log into their USPS Liteblue account and get up-to-date information regarding their current work schedule.
USPS Liteblue account also helps you to get epayroll details, special benefits, insurance status, pension-related, and lot more to help them keep track of their career progress. Through the Lightblue online portal, employees can even leave feedbacks and view any news or announcements relating to their employer organization anytime. –
All active United States Postal Service employees can access relevant personal and job-related information by logging on to the official USPS Liteblue Login page. For the login process, they must know their USPS Employee ID or EIN and must set up a new USPS SSP password.
How to know the USPS Employee ID?
Every USPS employee on joining the organization is assigned an 8-digit Employee ID or EIN, which is always printed on the top of the employees’ earnings statement. The employee identification number would be needed to log into the employee Liteblue portal and also when they need to update or change their USPS password in the future.
Registration Process for Setting up a Self Service Profile and Password
Every new USPS employee has to set their unique permanent SSP or Self Service Profile password first to have access to the employee Liteblue system. The USPS SSP is unique to USPS online platforms from where employees and associates can not only access their welfare applications like Liteblue but can also access other USPS applications like eIdeas, eReassign, eOpf, and many others.
A new employee, when hired by United States Postal Service receives a welcome letter with a preassigned SSP password in the mail, within the first two weeks of employment. The password assigned is temporary and is not meant to be used for logging into the Litblue portal or any other USPS Self Service applications. The employee can use the temporary SSP password to create a new permanent password by logging into the portal www.ssp.usps.gov using their USPS employee ID number. This step may also involve changing the employee contact email details and security questions.
The following points should be noted when creating a new USPS SSP password:
The new SSP password should have eight to sixteen characters made up of numbers, letters, and special characters.
The SSP passwords must contain a number (0-9), at least one special character, a lower-case alphabet letter, and at least one upper-case alphabet letter. The site would not accept and flag an error any new password creation, not following the above criteria.
Care should be taken while entering the SSP password containing both upper-case and lower-case letters to log in to the Liteblue portal as they are case sensitive.
Always note that SSP passwords are different from ACE passwords, and both serve widely different purposes.
One cannot use the USPS PIN or Personal Identification number to set up the new SSP password.
Steps to Logging into the USPS Liteblue Online Portal
Employees armed with their USPS Employee ID number and new USPS Self Service Profile password can log into the Liteblue portal through the URL www.liteblue.usps.gov. The homepage of the website would show two clear screen boxes marked “Employee ID” and “USPS Password.” Once the fields are filled with the relevant details, the employee can have access to all their profile and work-related information.
How to Reset password or set “Forgot password”?
The home page of the Liteblue portal containing the two clear screen boxes with “Employee ID and “USPS Password” also contains additional instructions. Right below the “Log In” button next to the USPS password box, there exists a simple clickable instruction labeled “Forgot Password.” Clicking on the option will instruct the employee to verify their employee credentials and guide them through a set of steps to create and receive a new USPS Password.
