CAIVRS User Registration for Employees of
Participating CAIVRS Federal Agencies
Business Background

User IDs must be issued to employees of Federal agencies participating in the Credit Alert Verification Reporting System (CAIVRS) who wish to use CAIVRS on the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Web site.

Each Federal agency can have up to four Agency Administrators (also referred to as Application Coordinators) that maintain user IDs for the entire agency. Once the designated Agency Administrator receives a user ID and is assigned the CAIVRS role of Agency Administrator, other employees of the agency can use the CAIVRS User Registration for Non-HUD Federal Government Employees form to apply for their own user IDs. When the employee's registration is successfully completed, an FHA Connection ID is generated. An e-mail message is sent to the e-mail address provided on the employee's registration form indicating that an FHA Connection user ID was issued. If an ID was not issued, an explanation is provided. The Agency Administrator obtains the ID issued for the employee and grants the employee the appropriate CAIVRS authorization. The user ID is disclosed to the employee by the Agency Administrator.

The Agency Administrator can update nonsecure employee information, reset passwords, and terminate a user ID when applicable. Send an e-mail to if secure information (i.e., Social Security Number or Mother's Maiden Name) must be corrected or a terminated ID reinstated.

Note: The user ID is a unique identification number assigned specifically to an individual within an organization. Sharing the ID is prohibited.
