Contact your local USDA Service Center to make sure:

  • You have an individual customer record on file.
  • Your information is up-to-date.
  • Your record is connected to any business entity records you may have.

If you do not have an individual customer record, fill out the Customer Data Worksheet and submit it to your local service center.

3. Verify Your Identity

To keep your personal information protected and secure, farmers.gov requires that you verify your identity.
You have two options for verifying your identity:

  1. (Recommended) Verify your identity online using Login.gov’s online verification option. 
  2. Schedule a visit to your local 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.

Confirm Your USDA Customer Record Is Linked

If you verified your identity online, there will be an automatic attempt to link your USDA individual customer record to your Login.gov account. If you verified your identity in-person, ask your local USDA Service Center staff to link your accounts. 

  • If the attempt to link is successful, you will receive an email confirming the linkage. 
  • If the attempt is not successful, contact your local USDA Service Center to link your individual customer record to your account.

Once your record is linked, you're ready to sign into your Login.gov account and start using farmers.gov.

You will not be able to log into farmers.gov until your account and record are linked.
