How to Create an Access Indiana Account

ILEAD Is Moving Rectangle

Starting June 1, 2022, you will log into I-LEAD in a new way – using a portal called Access Indiana. Access Indiana is a single sign-on portal that will make doing business in Indiana easier while keeping user information safe and secure. You can prepare for this transition by creating your Access Indiana account, using the same email address you use to access I-LEAD.

Follow these steps to create an Access Indiana account.

Visit https://access.in.gov and click Don’t have an Access Indiana account?


Enter your email address and click Send Verification Code. Go to your email account and find the five-digit code from no-reply@www.in.gov. Enter the code in the Verification Code section of the page and click Continue. 


On the next screen, you will be asked to create a password. The text on the right will help you create a strong password with a mix of lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numbers and symbols. Once you have entered and confirmed your password, click Continue.


On the next screen, you will be asked to enter some more information about you, including your first name, last name and phone number. Then click Create Account.

On the next page, you can sign up for two-step verification. This is optional but will make your account more secure. If you sign up, you will be asked for a unique code each time you sign in using Access Indiana. Once you have made your selection, click Continue to move to the next page.


Setting up a recovery email can help you keep access to your account if your email address changes. Click No, thanks. or Yes, please! and then click Continue. If you selected Yes, please! you will be asked to enter a recovery email address.

You have successfully created your Access Indiana account. If you created this account before June 1, 2022, you will continue to use I-LEAD by visiting ilead.in.gov and signing in using your I-LEAD email address and password. Beginning June 1, 2022, you will go to the same page but sign in using your new Access Indiana password.
