Digital Identity

We’re integrating the Government’s Digital Identity system so customers can prove their identity online when they apply for payments and services.

Customers can set up their Digital Identity online when it’s most convenient for them.

Once a customer has created a Digital Identity, they can use it with any government agency that accepts it. This means they can prove who they are online without having to provide documents every time. Whenever a customer uses their Digital Identity, they give permission to share their details.

Customers can use their Digital Identity to:

  • sign in to their myGov account
  • prove their identity to Centrelink, and link Centrelink to their myGov account.

Find out more about Digital Identity on the Digital Identity website.
