Why do I get the following error message?
The Employee Portal (Human Resources web site) is part of an Intranet – a private network that is contained within an enterprise. The main purpose of an Intranet is to share company information among employees. Although you have access to the Horizon BCBSNJ Intranet, you may not have access to the Internet which is why the error message above would appear.
How do I log in to the Employee Portal?
Click on "Internet Explorer" from your desktop, and the Employee Portal Login Screen will display.
If it’s your first time signing onto the Employee Portal, you must first register. (See the instructions above for how to do this.)
Your password will be provided to you. Please remember not to share your password with anyone because your password provides access to your personal information. In addition, you remain signed on to the Employee Portal until you close the Internet browser (Internet Explorer), so please remember to close the browser when you are done using the Employee Portal.
How secure is my information?
Your information is secured and only accessible by you using the User ID and password that you established when you registered for Employee Portal access. As long as you do not tell anyone your password or do not write it down, and you remember to close the browser when you walk away from your workstation, no one will be able to access your information through the Employee Portal.
What happens if I enter the wrong password?
You have 5 attempts to enter the correct password for your account. If you enter the wrong password more than 5 times, your account will be locked. You will need to utilize the "Forgot my Password or Locked my Account" feature to unlock your account.
Can I use Netscape to view the web site?
Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey supports the Internet Explorer browser. Netscape is not supported.
Does my password expire?
Yes, all user passwords expire 60 days from the date established. At that time, you will be prompted to change your password. If you fail to do so in a timely fashion, you may be denied access to the Employee Portal.
Are passwords case-sensitive?
Yes. This means that if you originally used an upper case "T" in your password, you must always use an upper case "T" to sign on. When the Caps-Lock is on, the system will remind you that passwords are case-sensitive. You should always verify that the information you enter is correct prior to hitting the "Enter" key.
