Registration and access levels

Do I need to register?

Yes. Once you have a Legal & General agency number, you need to register to take advantage of our eservices (including OLP Connect). Find out more.

How do I create, manage or reset my password?

As part of the online registration process, you’ll be asked to create a password of your choice. The format criteria for an acceptable password are as follows:  between 7 and 12 characters (letters and numbers only), must include a mixture of letters and numbers, must end with a letter. Sequential* characters are not allowed [*this includes alphabetical sequences (eg abcd), numerical sequences (eg 1234) or sequences on a standard keyboard (eg qwerty)]

Ideally don’t write your password down or save it where others can find out what it is.  If you think someone may have found out your login details, then you can change the password online using the forgotten your password? Link on the log in screen.

You should not share your password or login id with anyone else.  If a colleague needs access to your protection applications, they should register themselves and they’ll get their own login details.

Your password doesn’t expire, but for security purposes, you may wish to change it from time to time. You can do so by using the forgotten your password? Link on the log in screen.

If you mis-type your password three times when you’re logging in, your account will be suspended. If you’ve forgotten your password, please use the forgotten your password? Link on the log in screen.

For further assistance relating to the above, the registrations team can be contacted on 0370 050 0274 (option 2)

We may record and monitor calls. Call charges may vary.

I have a unipass digital certificate. Can I use that for accessing OLP Connect?

Yes. As part of the online registration to get access to OLP Connect, you can enter your unipass certificate details.  Also, if you already have OLP Connect access you can associate your unipass digital certificate to it. Associating your unipass certification will replace your username/password. More details.

I share an agency number with colleagues, but we've each been given our own OLP Connect username and password. Can we track and manage each other's cases?

Yes. In OLP Connect, your access is not restricted to only those cases submitted using your log on details. You can view and manage all cases submitted under your agency number. The agent name on an application is determined by the log on details of who originally created it and cannot be changed.

Are there different levels of access available and how do I set up the right one?

There are 2 different levels of access to select from as part of your online registration:

The standard level allows you access to business under your own agency number that you register with. 

The super user level allows you access to business under your own agency number that you register with and all other agency numbers associated with it (eg all other sub-agencies that share the same master agency number).

Within each access level there are 2 ‘roles’ to select from as part of your online registration:

The ‘adviser’ role allows you to authorise and view all cases recorded under your agency number

The ‘administrator’ role allows you to view all cases under your agency number but they must be checked and authorised by someone with adviser privileges.

By using the right combination of access level and role and associating your staff’s login details with the right master and sub-agency numbers, olp connect can be a powerful tool for your adviser firm’s protection business.  If you have questions about access levels and roles, our registrations team can help on 0370 050 0274 (option 2)

We may record and monitor calls. Call charges may vary.

A new member of staff has joined my adviser firm. Can I add them to my exisiting OLP Connect access?

They should register online themselves and obtain their own username and password.  Find out more.

A member of staff has left my adviser firm. Can I close down their OLP Connect access, but still be able to complete the applications they've started?

When someone leaves, they shouldn’t pass on their login details and password, they should be revoked.  You can’t revoke someone’s access yourself online, but our registrations team can do it for you.  Please contact them on 0370 050 0274 (option 2).

We may record and monitor calls. Call charges may vary.

If you share an agency number with the person who has left, you can probably already manage their applications through to completion anyway.  Or it may be that you or someone else within your firm needs to have their access level changed or their role upgraded to be able to complete the applications started by your former colleague.  The registrations team can arrange for this.

 

Logging in

How do I access OLP Connect?

From the adviser centre homepage, from the ‘quote and apply’ drop down menu, select ‘protection quote and apply’.

Can I click through into OLP Connect from my portal quote?

Yes.  When you click the apply button, you’ll be re-directed automatically into OLP Connect.  The quote data that you’ve already entered will automatically transfer over too, so you don’t have to enter it again.

I'm logging into OLP Connect for the first time. What do I need to do?

The first time you log in, you’ll have to carefully read and accept the terms and conditions before you can start creating quotes and applications.  You only have to do this once, though.

Why is it important to set up my agent profile before I submit any business?

Until you update your profile, your correspondence and contact preferences are set to system defaults. This can result in documents being incorrectly addressed or displaying no addressee name. This may delay the processing of your business.
