How do I create a SecureAccess Washington (SAW) account?

If you don’t already have one, create a SAW account by going to and clicking the “SIGN UP!” button. After entering your first and last names and your email address, and confirming that you’re not a robot, you should receive an email with a link to activate your account. Once your account is active, you’ll need to add Paid Family and Medical Leave to your SAW services. As a self-employed worker, you will need to create both an elective coverage account to report your hours and a benefit account to file your application.

Important: Do not delete your SAW account.
