The Employer Pensions and Benefits Information Connection (EPIC) is a set of Internet-based applications that allow registered employers access to their employees' pension and, if applicable, health benefit account information. Once you begin to use EPIC, we believe you will find it to be one of your most useful resources for the accurate information needed in the day-to-day administration of your employees' pensions and benefits.
Getting Ready to Use EPIC
Before you can begin using EPIC you must register with the myNewJersey website. Registration is described in the following section. Please read these instructions as registration requires several steps.
If you are already a registered user of myNewJersey, proceed to Part II for information on how to access the EPIC system.
How to Register with myNewJersey to Create a Secure Personal Account
How to Access EPIC for the First Time. (If you are not a first time user go to Step 9)
Important Note: For security purposes and to prevent unauthorized access to employee information, you should click "NO" if your computer asks if it should remember your myNewJersey login ID or password!
Note: Your Authentication Code is for one-time use only and will only work for the person to whom it is assigned! When you are finished using your Authentication Code, please destroy any copies of the code and delete the email that contains it!
Note: You will only need to enter your Authentication Code the first time you access EPIC. Once authorized, you will be able to go directly to the Pensions and Benefits channel and EPIC once you log in to myNewJersey.
When you first sign onto EPIC you are taken to the EPIC Home Page.
On the left side of the EPIC Home Page you will find "Employer Information" that identifies the employer through which you have access — the online help screen is available by clicking the "EPIC User's Guide" button.
On the right side of the EPIC Home Page are the "Employer Applications." For additional help on using specific applications, see the EPIC User's Guide.
Note for MBOS Users
If you have EPIC access through your employer and are also registered as a member in the Member Benefits Online System (MBOS), you may click the "Select MBOS Role" button to leave the current EPIC session and access your MBOS account
Note: If you are registered with multiple roles through EPIC and/or MBOS, you will need to select the role you wish to open for the session each time you log on.
The Division of Pensions & Benefits wants EPIC to be a tool that employers find useful and choose to use in their daily administrative work. We have made every effort to make EPIC powerful and secure while also keeping it easy to use. We would like to hear about how you liked using EPIC and welcome your suggestions on how EPIC could be made better for the way you work. Send your questions, comments, and suggestions to the Division of Pensions & Benefits our website or call the NJDPB's Employer Education Unit at 609-292-7524.
