Munis Employee Self Service (ESS) is a web-based application that allows employees to privately access personal and payroll information. This application serves as a 24/7 resource for all employees to access from any computer at their convenience.
Below are instructions on how to access and utilize the ESS site:
If you have never logged into the ESS portal before (new employees), your first-time password will be the last 4-digits of your Social Security number. Once you have logged in, you will be prompted to immediately change your password. Your user name will always be your 4-digit employee number.
If you have forgotten your password, try using the "Forgot your password?" link. This will e-mail you the password hint that you created for yourself the last time you changed your password. The e-mail will be sent to the address we have on file. For most employees, it will be their work e-mail address (@epsb.com), and others a personal e-mail address.
If you don't see your password retrieval e-mail in your inbox shortly after you requested it, please be sure to check your Spam/Junk folders to see if it got routed there. If for any reason you don't receive your password retrieval e-mail, please contact the ESS Administrator.
Passwords expire every 365 days. ESS will not warn you when your password is about to expire. Once it reaches 365 days (1 year), it just stops being usable. We recommend whenever your password gets re-set, you make a note in your calendar to log in to ESS a few days before the 365-day mark so you can change it before it expires. If you did not log into your ESS account in time to change your password yourself, please contact the ESS Administrator listed on this page for assistance.
When logging in, if any of the information you enter has errors, you only have 10 attempts at logging in before the ESS system will lock you out. Once you are locked out of the system, the only way to enter it again is to have your password reset by the ESS Administrator.
No. When an administrator resets your password, it is a temporary password that is good for one-time use only. Once you log in using the temporary password, the system will prompt you to immediately change your password to something that only you know.
Once you have had the Administrator re-set a password for you, only use the password the Administrator just gave you as your current password until you change it.
Yes, use strong passwords for the Munis ESS portal. Your password needs to be at least 8 characters in length. You must include at least one capital letter, one number, and one special character.
