We know USPS, or the United States Postal Service, as probably the best and most well-known mail delivery service globally. It is one of the largest government-run mail service organizations, employing hundreds of thousands of full-time employees. The much-admired mail service provider sincerely cares for its employees’ wellbeing and welfare, so they have created an intuitive online platform called USPS Liteblue.
Liteblue USPS GOV is the official online portal, specially created for use by 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.
A USPS Liteblue account also helps you get e-payroll details, special benefits, insurance status, pension-related information, and much more to help you keep track of your career progress. Through the Lightblue online portal, employees can even leave feedback and view any news or announcements relating to their employer organization at any time. –by Liteblue Page
USPS Liteblue Employee Login Guide
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, upon joining the organization, is assigned an 8-digit Employee ID, or EIN, which is always printed on the top of the employee’s earnings statement. The employee identification number is required to access the employee Liteblue portal and to update or change their USPS password.
Steps to Create a Self Service Profile
Every new USPS employee has to set their unique permanent SSP or Self Service Profile password first to access 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.
Within the first two weeks of being hired by the USPS, a new employee gets a welcome letter in the mail with a SSP password that has already been set up. The password assigned is temporary and is not meant to be used for logging into the Liteblue 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 at www.ssp.usps.gov using their USPS employee ID number. This step may also involve changing the employee’s 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 in 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.
- Remember that SSP passwords are different from ACE passwords, and both serve widely different purposes.
- To set up the new SSP password, one cannot use the USPS PIN or Personal Identification number.
Steps to Logging into the USPS Liteblue Online Portal
Employees can access the Liteblue portal at www.liteblue.usps.gov with their USPS Employee ID number and new USPS Self Service Profile password. The Liteblue USPS website’s homepage would show two clear screen boxes marked “Employee ID” and “USPS Password.” Once the fields are filled out with the right information, the employee can see everything about their profile and work.
How to Reset Liteblue USPS Password?
The home page of the Liteblue portal, which contains 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, a simple clickable instruction is 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.
