  • Deactivation Rule

TX-UNPS will deactivate user accounts automatically if the user has not signed into TX-UNPS every 120 days. All entity users including the UAM could be affected. TDA sends reminder emails about logging into the system 3 weeks and then again a week prior to the system automatically deactivating the user account. If the UAM’s account is deactivated, a new FND-135 form must be resubmitted to establish the account again. Until the new FND-135 form is received and processed, no other updates to users will be completed.

  • Keeping User Information Updated

Multiple notifications from TX-UNPS are sent via email. Notifications such as 120-day deactivation warning, activating user accounts, password resets, and reminders. Keeping the user information updated is extremely important. Review the User section on the CE System Logins > Details screen to ensure your users email address is correct including the UAM.
