Creating an online account

How do I create an account to access my FEMA registration online?


To create an online account, please:

  1. Visit DisasterAssistance.gov
  2. In the middle of the screen, on the right side, you will see an area that says "Check Your Application Status"
    • Click the button that says "Create one now"
    • A form will appear to confirm your identity before allowing you to access your FEMA information online.
  3. You will then take a short security quiz. This ensures your personal information is secure.
  4. After completing the security quiz, you will be asked to create a password.
    • You will also be provided a temporary PIN number via e-mail to the e-mail address provided at the time of the request. You should receive your temporary PIN within 24 hours of the request for a PIN.
  5. Please allow 24 hours after receiving your temporary PIN via e-mail before accessing your personal account. When you first login, you will be asked to change the temporary PIN to a "Token" of your choosing.

FEMA representatives cannot create online accounts for applicants; this would be a violation of the Privacy Act. If you require technical assistance accessing your online account, please call the FEMA Technical Help Desk at 1-800-745-0243; they are available 24 hours a day seven days a week.
