PIN Reset - Incorrect Birthday Error
Contact your department if you get an error that indicates your birthday is incorrect. The department can verify the birthdate in the system. If the birthdate in the system is incorrect, use the wrong birthdate to establish the PIN. Then update your birthdate information in the Employee Information form.
If you are using a public workstation or someone has logged onto NESSIE on the machine you are using before you logged on you may also receive this incorrect birthday error. Close the web browser and re-enter NESSIE. When you log in again you should be able to enter your PIN without receiving an error.
To reset your PIN, complete the PIN Request Page and click Submit.
