    Who can make a farmers.gov account?

    • Beginning farmers and ranchers can get help from USDA starting or growing their operations with a variety of programs and services, from farm loans to crop insurance, and conservation programs to disaster assistance.
    • Customers who need access to entity data (such as an LLC or Trust) or to act on behalf of another customer, must first login as themselves, with their own eAuth account.
    • Individuals with both an eAuth account and representative authority to act on behalf of another customer (entity or individual), will have the ability to ‘Switch Profiles’ after login. "Switch Profile" is available for active representative authority relationships. For example, an active FSA-211, Power of Attorney, on file in your local county office. Click "Switch Profile" in the gold banner to view active profiles and switch to another individual or entity in farmers.gov.

    Create a Farmers.gov Account

    To access your farmers.gov account, you will need an individual customer USDA eAuthentication (eAuth) account linked to your USDA Business Partner (BP) customer record.

    USDA eAuthentication (eAuth) is the system used by USDA agencies to enable individual customers to obtain accounts that will allow them to securely access USDA Web applications and services via the Internet.

    A USDA Business Partner (BP) Customer Record includes basic customer information including name, main address, primary communication data, legal representative authority relationships, and notes.

    1. Confirm you have a BP record

    Contact your local USDA Service Center to confirm that you have a current USDA Business Partner customer record.

    Your USDA Business Partner Customer Record must include a standard email address that matches the email address you will use to create your eAuthentication account. 

    If you need a new record, your local Service Center will help you to create one.

    2. Visit the login page 

    Once you have the new or updated Business Partner record, visit the farmers.gov account login page and select “Create Account”. 

    Visit the eAuth Frequently Asked Questions if you have any eAuth account questions.

    3. Follow the steps and verify your identity

    Select Create Account as a "Customer" on the eAuthentication account registration page and follow the directions on the site. Use the Help “?” for guidance during the registration process.

    To keep your personal information protected and secure, you have two options to verify your identity.

    Option 1: (Recommended) Verify your identity online during the registration process using the USDA self-service Online Identity Verification Application.

    Option 2: Schedule a visit to your USDA Service Center for in-person identity verification with a Local Registration Authority (LRA) employee. LRAs are located at most Service Center offices, but please call ahead to ensure that one is available to assist you.

    4. Log In to Farmers.gov

    Once your identity is verified and your eAuthentication account is linked to your USDA BP customer record, you can securely log in to farmers.gov and other customer facing FSA and NRCS systems using your new eAuthentication account login and password

    To “Act-on-Behalf” of one of your USDA registered Power of Attorney or Business Entity relationships in farmers.gov, you must first log into farmers.gov with your individual account and then use the “Switch Profile” menu option to access other authorized accounts.

    Contact technical support or your local service center for help with accessing these online services.
