  • Name 
  • PPSN (CRO number, if account is for a company) 
  • Date of Birth

Most common queries when creating an online account:

  • What details will I need to log into my online account? 

Remember to take note of your account ID, password and pin during account creation as these will be required to access your account in future. 

  • Where do I find my account ID? 

During the online account creation process, you will receive an e-mail to the e-mail address you provided, which will contain your account ID. You should save this e-mail/account ID for future reference. 

  • What if I forget my pin or password? 

If you forget your password or pin, you can use the self-service account recovery options located on the log in screen. Click on “forgot your password” or “forgot your pin”. You will be asked for your account ID and the answer to your security question (set by you during account creation). You will need to have access to the e-mail address registered to your RTB account.  

  • I set up an account previously but never used it, now I want to set up a new account – what should I do?

If you already have an account set up, you will not be able to use the same email address to set up a new one. You will need to reactivate your old account or use a different email address to set up your new account.
