Identity Verification

When you verify your identity either through the Online Verification tool or by visiting a DHHS housing office, you are ensuring that only you will have access to your mail sent to your myGov inbox via Digital mail.

How does Online Verification work?

  • From the HousingVic Online Services screen you will be asked to verify who you are by answering a series of questions relevant to your DHHS housing services
  • After answering the questions correctly you will be sent a verification code either to your email or mobile by sms 
  • Once you enter the verification code in the HousingVic Online Services screen you can then consent to receive your correspondence via Digital mail delivered to the myGov inbox.

If online verification is not possible or you are registering in person at a DHHS housing office you must complete the following steps:

  • Provide 100 points of identity - examples of the types of documents accepted can be found on the following link: https://www.housing.vic.gov.au/proof-identity
  • A Housing Services Officer will then provide you with a unique client identification number and a verification code which will be sent to your email or mobile by sms
  • Once you have entered both codes in the HousingVic Online Services screen you can then consent to receive your correspondence via Digital mail.

Digital Mail

When you link your myGov account to HousingVic Online Services, you can:

  • Select to receive mail about your housing application or bond loan (with Digital mail for public housing tenants to follow in the future months)
  • View and save your mail in your myGov inbox.
