View your My Aged Care Online Account
When you apply for aged care, a personalised record is set up for you, with your consent. This is called your My Aged Care Online Account (formerly called ‘My Aged Care client record’). It contains everything about you and your aged care supports in one place.
You can access your Online Account by logging in through myGov – a secure way to access Australian Government services like Medicare, Centrelink, and My Aged Care online.
This page covers how to access and use your My Aged Care Online Account.
Note: ‘Online Account’ is the new term for ‘client record’ / ‘online client record’.
Your Online Account houses important information about your assessments, services, and interactions. Here are some things it lets you do:
- If your contact details change (for example, home or email address), you can update them.
- If you’re on the waitlist for a Home Care Package, you can view updates about wait times and see what level of package you’ve been allocated.
- If you need your My Aged Care ID number, you can find it here. Your ID number will begin with the letters AC, followed by 8 digits.
- If you’ve been approved for a new service, you can find your referral code to pass on to your new provider.
- If you need details of past service providers, you can view the history of your aged care.
- If you’ve misplaced an important document, you can find copies of all the letters you’ve received from My Aged Care.
There are three steps you will need to follow to make sure that your My Aged Care Online Account is active and easy to access online. You will only need to do this setup once:
Step 1: Activate your My Aged Care Online Account
Call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 to activate your Online Account. This will be done during your call so you know it’s been activated.
If you applied for an assessment online (through the My Aged Care website), your Online Account will already be activated. You can go to Step 2.
Step 2: Log in to your myGov account (or create one)
The way you access your My Aged Care Online Account is through myGov.
If you already have a myGov account: you can log in to myGov using your existing username and password. Once you have logged in, you can go to Step 3.
If you don’t have a myGov account: you will need to create one. You can do this online with the help of the Create a myGov account guide.
If you are accessing a My Aged Care Online Account for someone you represent: please read through the representatives section further down this page before proceeding.
Step 3: Connect your My Aged Care Online Account to your myGov account
Once you have logged into myGov, you need to connect your My Aged Care Online Account. To do this, choose My Aged Care from the services list (see Image 1 below). Then follow the online prompts, as instructed.
