Trouble Logging In

The most common reason for receiving an error message is if one or more pieces of the information entered do not match what we have on file. Please review the information entered to ensure that it's accurate.


Double check the user name you are entering by using our Forgot User Name functionality, which is a very simple process. We highly encourage this as a first step.

Two-Factor Authentication Method

We have upgraded our login technology and processes to use an industry-leading risk-based approach to better protect your accounts. If you are not asked a question, it is because we feel confident that there is no risk of fraudulent behavior. It is T. Rowe Price policy not to discuss security specific details.


If you prefer the additional layer of authentication and want to always see a security question (or be challenged with the two-factor method of your choice) please log in to your account, locate your profile information, and check the box to "Ask me for my selected log in security method every time I log in" or "Ask me security questions every time I login".


Plan sponsors, advisors, and auditors must call the help desk and request this option to be selected for them.

  1. Your answers must be 3 to 20 characters long, including spaces. Answers are not case sensitive.
  2. Use one-word answers; avoid words such as "and," "the," etc.
  3. Follow the recommended format. For example, if your security question is "What is your mother's date of birth?" use the preferred format (MMDD).
  4. Avoid odd answers; you may not remember them in the future.
  5. Note the key words. If your security question is "What is your father's middle name?," do not enter "Jason Thompson."
  6. Be careful with spaces. For example, if you enter "New York" as one of your answers, the system will reject "Newyork."
