How to link a service to your myGov account if you don’t have an online account with that service.
We will ask you some questions to make sure we link the correct record to your myGov account. These questions will be different for each service you link to. They can include:
- reference numbers
- payment history, or
- bank account details
Make sure you have this information ready before you begin.
Go to myGov and sign in.
- Link your first service, or
- Services from the menu bar
Select the service you would like to link to from the list.
In this example, we will link Medicare.
If you are linking to Medicare, the Australian Taxation Office or Centrelink for the first time, you will be asked to agree to myGov storing your personal information.
Select I agree to accept myGov storing your personal information.
Select I do not have an online account with the service you want to link to, then select Next.
You will be asked to answer some questions to make sure we link the correct record to your myGov account. We may ask you to confirm personal details such as:
- your name
- address, and
- date of birth
The questions are based on information provided to the service in the past. For example, to link to Medicare, you may be asked when you last visited your doctor.
Answer the questions, then select Next.
Your service is now linked to your myGov account.
- link to another service by selecting a service from the list
- select Home from the menu bar
- Select Sign out
For your privacy and security, select Sign out when you have finished using your myGov account.
