Already signed up for a Paycom account, but don’t know how or where to start?
Then you’ve come to the right place.
Because today I’m going to show you the exact methods and tools I use to access my Paycom account on any device and from anywhere.
Paycom is a comprehensive HR and payroll software that helps companies streamline their HR processes through a variety of advanced features and tools, such as their advanced employee onboarding software, enhanced background checks and employee Self Service, among many others.
In my opinion, Employee Self-Service is one of the most important features the Paycom software has to offer, as it helps pull administrative transactions from the HR department so they can focus on more strategic initiatives.
Employee Self Service is designed to meet your needs. They’ve made it as easy to use as possible, and they’ve also given your employer the ability to give you power and complete control over your employee data. Everything available in Employee Self-Service can be found in one convenient location where all your information is stored, as well as the functions needed to perform all necessary processes and tasks.
This guide will guide you through the steps you need to take to log in to the Paycom system. But you will also learn other useful things such as changing your password and/or username, changing your security questions and logging out.
Your Human Resources (HR) or Payroll department has probably already emailed you your username and password, along with detailed login instructions. You can use that information to follow along with this guide.
How to log in to Paycom?
To log in to the Paycom system, you need to go to www.Paycom.com or www.PaycomDFW.com†
Once you’re there, you’ll immediately see the login button in the black bar at the top of the page.
Hovering over the login button will reveal options for different types of users, including customers, employees, and accountants.
Select ‘Employee’, enter your username, your password and the last four digits of your Social Security Number (SSN).
After entering the required information, click on the big blue button that says “LOGIN.”
See the image below for a better understanding.
(Note: If you do not know your username and/or password, please contact your HR team or Payroll department for assistance. If your HR or Payroll departments give you a one-time access link, you will need to change your access information immediately to continue.)
Every time you open the Paycom app, you will immediately be taken to the main menu of Employee Self-Service.
How to access your account from your mobile device?
Employees who already use Paycom’s HR and payroll technology at work can use the Paycom app to access the Employee Self-Service portal on the go, when and where they need it.
All of your data is accessible through the app, including past and current pay slips, benefits, tax forms, contact information and more. You can access it at any time by using a secure fingerprint ID or PIN.
That said, if you don’t already have it, you’ll need to download the mobile app for Android or iOS first.
After you set up the app on your Android device, you can access your account by touching the fingerprint sensor and then entering your 4-digit PIN.
If you’re using an iOS device, such as an iPhone or iPad, you can sign in to the app with Face ID or a 4-digit PIN.
After signing in from your mobile device, you can get instant answers through Self-Service, quickly clock in and out from your device, and perform essential administrative tasks with Manager on-the-Go. Plus, you can also take advantage of Beti, an industry first that allows you to access, review, manage, and approve your paycheck before payday.
How can you change your password or username?
When you log in to Paycom for the first time, you are immediately prompted to change your password according to the initial password length and strength rules. But if you think it is not safe enough, you can always change it to a new one by following the steps below.
First you need to go to the page where you can change your password or username. This can be done in one of the following ways:
- Click “Change Password or Username” in the left sidebar or click “Help and Settings” and then select “Change Password.”
Choose a new password that is both easy to remember and hard to crack (very secure). Enter your current password once, followed by the new one twice, as prompted. Now click on “Change password” to complete the process.
If you want to change your username, select ‘Change username’.
Enter your username, it must be a valid email address, and click “Update Username” when you’re done.
How to log out?
For added security, always sign out when you are finished using the Self-Service app on desktop or mobile.
You can do this by simply clicking the “Log Out” button at the top right of your screen.
After clicking the “Log Out” button, you will be asked if you are sure you want to log out, select “OK” or will not be logged out of Employee Self-Service completely.
3 things to keep in mind for better account security
- The company will never ask you to submit or change your account information via email.
- Company employees will never ask you for your account details or personal information.
- The Paycom team will never ask you to sign up on their site via email.
