Keep me signed in on this computer
The “Keep me signed in on this computer” option is available in order to eliminate the need for you to enter your email address and password each time you access PA Courts Online Services from your computer.  If you check this option, the next time you access the website from the same computer you will go directly to the Home page.  The automatic sign-in will persist until you click the Sign Out link in the left column or your temporary internet files and cookies are deleted.

Password Requirements
Your password must be at least 8 characters and include at least one character that is a letter and at least one character that is a number. The maximum length is 100 characters.  Special characters can be included within the password but are not required.  The password is case sensitive.

You can change your password at any time by clicking the 'Change My Password' link on the PA Courts Online Services home page.  If you have the “Keep me signed in” option selected on this computer, your new password will be saved to keep you signed in for future sessions.  If you sign in using another computer after changing your password, you will have to recheck the “Keep me signed in” option on the other computer.

Account is Locked
Your Online Services account automatically locks when the maximum limit of sign in attempts is exceeded.  An email will be automatically sent to you containing instructions for successfully signing into Online Services.  If your account is locked multiple times in a row without successfully signing in, a full lockdown may occur.  In that case, you will be required to communicate with the JAAS Help Desk for security purposes.  Please refer to the Contact Us page for the JAAS Help Desk contact information.

Forgot My Password/Reset Password
If you've forgotten your password, click the 'Have you forgotten your password?' link on the Employee Online Services sign in page.  You will be prompted to enter your email address and the last four digits of your SSN on the Reset Password page.  Click the Submit button.  An email containing your new password will be sent to you within the hour.  You will be prompted to change the password after you successfully sign into Online Services.
