During a recent Direct Access (DA) system upgrade, the forgot password security question "What is your mother's maiden name?" was disabled in DA to reduce the possibility of a compromise of personally identifiable information (PII). For users who originally chose this as a security question, the hint question will now default to "What town were you born in?" but the ANSWER has NOT changed from what the user originally established for "What is your mother's maiden name?"
For those who have tried to use the Forgot Password feature and have been locked out of DA, please email PPC-DG-CustomerCare@uscg.mil to request a temporary password. Once logged into DA, you will need to follow the user guide below to change your security question, answer, or both.
It is recommended that users who originally selected "What is your mother's maiden name?" as their Forgot Password security question, log into DA and follow the user guide below to change the security question, answer, or both.
