About LiteBlue.

LiteBlue.USPS.gov, or Liteblue for short, is an online web portal, exclusively for employees of the United States Postal Service, which allows them to access the company’s extranet service.

Through LiteBlue, employees are able to keep up-to-date with important information and track their own career progress. The service offers access to information about employee benefits, pensions, employment status and insurance, and allows users to make certain adjustments.

In addition, employees can view announcements or news related to the USPS and provide feedback. At present, the service is available in English, Spanish and simple Chinese.

Liteblue Login.

How Do I Log In to My LiteBlue Employee Account?

The Liteblue login process is relatively straight forward, although you will need to know your Employee ID and your USPS Self Service Profile (SSP) Password. Visit our Liteblue Login help page if you are need help logging in, or if you are experiencing problems with setting up your Liteblue account.

Setting Up a SSP Profile.

If you are a new USPS employee, then you need to set up a SSP password first, in order to access the LiteBlue system.  USPS’s Self Service Profile or SSP is the online platform in which USPS associates manage their login credentials for all USPS Self Service web applications, like LiteBlue,PostalEASE, eIdeas, eOPF, and eReassign.

When you are hired by USPS, you will receive a letter with a temporary SSP password in the mail, after roughly 10-14 days. The password in the letter is a temporary SSP password and cannot be used to log in to LiteBlue or other HR Self Service applications. So, the first thing you need to do is visit www.ssp.usps.gov and change your temporary password to a permanent password. Log in with your employee ID and temporary password, in order to change your password, change your contact email or security questions.

What is my USPS Employee ID?

Your Employee ID is an eight-digit number, which can be found at the top of your earnings statement. Your self service password is a password used to access self service web applications.

How do I log in to the LiteBlue website?

You can gain access to your account by visiting the LiteBlue login homepage. From there, around half way down the screen, you should see two fields marked ‘Employee ID’ and ‘USPS Password’. Enter your Employee ID in the first field and then enter your USPS Self Service Password in the second field, taking care to avoid typing errors. Then, press the ‘Log On’ button to gain access to your profile.

Liteblue Usps Passwords.

How Do I Create or Reset My LiteBlue Password?

Your SSP Password is the password for the current system, which has been in place since April 2014, and is used to access self service web applications. However, if you have not yet set up your password, or if you have forgotten what your password is, you can click here, or follow the instructions on the LiteBlue login page.

On the first page, click on the ‘Enter SSP’ button and you will be taken to the SSP sign in page. Underneath the login boxes on the left hand side, click on the link labelled ‘Forgot Password?’ and enter your eight-digit Employee ID. Click on the ‘Verify Employee ID’ button and follow the instructions to receive a new password.

Liteblue Login Problems.

I Cannot Log In to LiteBlue – What Could Be the Problem?

On occasions, USPS employees may experience problems logging in and the most obvious thing to check is that you are definitely entering the right information. Your Employee ID should be eight-digits long, while your LiteBlue SSP password should be between eight and 16 characters long.

Double check that you have entered the information correctly, without any spelling errors. It is also worth checking to make sure both CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK are turned off on your keyboard if you are using a computer.

Employees should be aware that SSP passwords and ACE passwords are independent from one another. Similarly, your USPS Personal Identification Number (PIN) is only used for Self Service IVRs (Interactive Voice Response Systems), rather than web services.

LiteBlue SSP Passwords must contain at least one character from three of the following four categories:

  • Numbers: 0-9.
  • Alphabet letters: a-z (lower case).
  • Alphabet letters: A-Z (upper case).
  • Special characters: ! @ $ % ^ * _ + ~

Aside from those listed above, no other special characters are allowed. LiteBlue passwords are case sensitive, so it is especially important that you take care when entering passwords that contain both upper and lower case letters.

In addition to these common login problems, it is possible that LiteBlue or the USPS extranet may experience technical issues from time to time, or undergo scheduled maintenance work, which will make it either difficult or impossible to gain access to your account.

Unfortunately, the only real solution to this is to try to log in again later on. In most cases, maintenance and other server issues will be short-lived and employees will be made aware in advance, although this is not always possible.

Finally, there are some known issues with LiteBlue and the Opera and Firefox internet browsers. If you are experiencing issues and you are using either of those browsers, you could try logging in via either Internet Explorer or Google Chrome instead. It may also be worth updating your browser to the latest version.

There is not currently a mobile app for the LiteBlue service, although you should be able to gain access to your account through your mobile web browser. Again, however, if you experience problems, try updating your browser to the most recent version, and try using Google Chrome if you experience issues on other mobile browsers.
