Note: If you use a mailing address as your preferred contact method you will still need to access a computer to activate your USI account or change your password.
Why will you contact me?
The USI Office will contact you to:
- send you a link to activate your USI account

Can I hide my contact details?
Yes, select ‘Hide Contact Details’ if you do not want your contact details displayed to organisations you have not given permission to view and update your USI account.
What email address should I use?
Your chosen email address is where emails will be sent to you. You must use an email address that is unique to you because your email address can also be used as your User ID when logging into the USI Registry System. If you do not have an email address you can leave this field blank.
Note: For privacy reasons the USI Registry System does not allow an email address to be used on more than one USI account.
Your mobile number is the number on which you may be contacted or receive SMS messages. Cell number is another term used for mobile number.
