Creating an OBG Account

Creating an OBG Company Account

OBG accounts are based on the business' FEIN (Federal Employer ID Number) or Social Security Number (in the case of a sole proprietor without a FEIN).

If a person owns multiple businesses with different FEINs, a separate OBG account must be created for each FEIN.

To set up a business account:

Follow the "Create an OBG Username" link on the login page. You will go through a two-part process, where you will first create the OBG Company Account and then you will create your OBG Username.

In order to create the company account, you will need the following information:

  • Company FEIN (or SSN)
  • Company name
  • Contact information for a company representative

Once you complete the Company account, you will create your OBG Username. You become the initial OBG Administrator and have the ability to create additional users and define their access levels. For more information, see OBG Administrator functions

Creating an OBG Username

Follow the "Create an OBG Username" link on the login page. You must provide the FEIN or SSN for the business for which you would like to access OBG services.

Once you provide your personal information, the system will generate an email request to the business' OBG Administrator. Once the OBG Administrator has approved the request and assigned your access, you will receive your password at the email address you provided.
